Inga Kačevska and three other arbitration specialists met with Minister of Justice in 18.09.2008. Participants of the meeting discussed about the new draft Arbitration law that has raised the discussions in the lawyer's society.

There are more than 150 arbitration institutions in Latvia; however, the new draft law does not deal with the problem this number raises - that anyone can establish arbitration institution and the quality of the arbitration process in those arbitration courts.


In opposite, the new draft law the principal of party's autonomy and supremacy of arbitration agreement is limited. For example, Article 12 provides that "the parties of the arbitration agreement shall agree only on the permanent arbitration institution that is registered in the Latvian enterprise register" meaning that the parties will not be able to agree on the ICC or SCC or Article 8 provides that the parties shall choose the arbitrators from the list of arbitrators that is registered in the enterprise register.

Partner of the Law Office has submitted her commentaries on the new draft law, however, the process of the changing the draft is minimal what is unfortunate.
