The history of CAMARB is undeniably associated with the history of arbitration in Brazil, rejuvenated by the enactment of the Brazilian Arbitration Act – Federal Law No. 9,307 – in 1996, which has unveiled new horizons for its development, both domestically and internationally.
CAMARB was founded in 1998 under the name of Câmara de Arbitragem de Minas Gerais (Arbitration Chamber of Minas Gerais), initially linked to the Federation of Industries of the State of Minas Gerais (FIEMG).
Two years later, with the support of other business and academic entities – the State of Minas Gerais Heavy Construction Industry Union (SICEPOT/MG), the Minas Gerais Institute of Attorneys (IAMG), the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais (PUC/Minas) and Dom Cabral Foundation (FDC), CAMARB became an association, becoming an autonomous and functionally independent Chamber.
Having consolidated its professional image in Minas Gerais, the Chamber opened an office in São Paulo in 2005 and another in Rio de Janeiro in 2013, to meet growing demand.
CAMARB is thus a non-profit association with offices in Belo Horizonte, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, with an organizational structure that includes a Board of Directors, a Management Board, and a Clerk’s Office.
Sitting on the Chamber’s Board of Directors are experienced and renowned legal and business professionals, specifically with respect to the settlement of disputes. The Chamber’s Management Board is made up of well-known and detail-oriented professionals.
The Clerk’s Office relies on process clerks to carefully track the progress of all cases under the coordination of the General Clerk. This painstaking case-management process, combined with a relentless pursuit of innovation and user satisfaction, sets CAMARB apart from the other arbitration chambers in the country.
Over the years, CAMARB has managed a series of arbitral proceedings with recognized experience and quality, ranking among Brazil’s top five arbitration chambers, always with a high level of user satisfaction, becoming a benchmark in Brazil.
