Cameroon has an arbitration centre to facilitate arbitration procedures and resolution of conflicts. GICAM (Groupement Inter-Patronal du Cameroun) Arbitration Centre is a reference in the CEMAC sub-region. The Cameroon Chamber of Commerce also plays this role.
Arbitration has become a necessity in Cameroon for important business transactions as it is the most convenient means of alternative dispute resolution, due to some bottlenecks in our courts. The flexibility of arbitration has made economic operators to include it in their contracts as the mode of regulation of their conflicts.
Cameroon has a modern arbitration system as provided by Articles 21 to 26 of the OHADA Treaty, the OHADA Uniform Act related to Arbitration and the Arbitration Rules before the COMMON COURT OF JUSTICE AND ARBITRATION OF MARCH 11, 1999.
Our Law Firm do represent the legal interest of many national and international corporations at GICAM.
