Find a Resolver and Mediation & Arbitration Rules

Find a Resolver

The Bermuda Branch operates an appointments scheme for use by any party who wishes to have an Arbitrator or Mediator knowledgeable about the process and who will ensure that the appointment is carried out in a scrupulously fair manner in accordance with established rules appointed by a neutral body.

The person chosen will be the one that the Appointments’ Committee considers to have the most suitable credentials for the nature of the dispute. Suitable neutral comfortable locations are used throughout the City of Hamilton which includes the Bermuda Commercial Court and beyond, extending to other areas on the island. Please note that Bermuda time is one hour ahead of New York and four hours behind London.* Arbitrators and Mediators are forms of 'Resolver'
