John Buckley Appointed to ICC Task Force on ADR and Arbitration

June 2020

Upon the nomination of its U.S. National Committee, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has appointed John Buckley to the ICC Task Force on ADR and Arbitration.

The ICC’s description of the Task Force’s mandate reads in part: “This project comes as a key moment in our dispute resolution community where users will be looking to prevent disputes or otherwise resolve their disputes more efficiently than ever before.  With a view towards contributing meaningfully to the dispute resolution system in the ‘new normal,’ our plan is to conduct a comprehensive review as to the existing dispute resolution structures and develop concepts and produce outcomes that users can apply in resolving their disputes.”

John has extensive experience in drafting and applying of arbitral rules. He is a member of the Council of the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR) and CPR’s Arbitration Committee, is co-chair of CPR’s Rules Revision Committee and Model Clause Task Force, and is chair of its Fast Track Rules Committee. He was recently a delegate to the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Working Group II’s 71st Session, which is developing expedited arbitration rules. He has consistently been cited as among the top U.S. commercial arbitration practitioners in Euromoney’s Guide to the World’s Leading Experts in Commercial Arbitration.  He sits as arbitrator and is listed on the arbitrator rosters of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), CPR, the International Arbitration Institute (Paris), and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.  

Since 2015, John has been Visiting Clinical Lecturer at Yale Law School, where he teaches Advocacy in International Arbitration.  He is the founder and former head of Williams & Connolly’s international arbitration practice.
