A leading Clayton Utz lawyer has been appointed to a UK court, the law firm has confirmed.

Doug Jones AM, the national head of Clayton Utz' International Arbitration practice and president of the Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration, has been appointed by the London Court of International Arbitration's Board of Directors to serve a five year term on the LCIA Arbitration Court.

Jones himself said of his appointment to the Court, which comprises 35 members: "It is a great honour to be appointed to the LCIA Court and I am

extremely humbled by the Board's decision. I believe the appointment of an Australian arbitrator to the Court will help position Australia as a global leader and centre for international arbitration."

The LCIA is one of the longest-established international institutions for commercial dispute resolution.

Jones added that he welcomes the recent decision by the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General to adopt uniform national laws on domestic arbitration.

“Uniform national laws will ensure resolution is provided quickly and

effectively, and will further promote Australia as a centre for international arbitration,” he said.
