Recent International Developments In The Review Of Arbitration Agreements
Arbitration is an increasingly attractive dispute resolution mechanism for disputants worldwide. It has proven itself to be resilient to global shocks and, generally, a reliable mechanism. International arbitration is not without its risks when it comes to the conduct of international arbitration and the enforcement of awards. The problems often arise because of an incomplete or unclear arbitration agreement. Nonetheless, the risks and pitfalls can often be considered and mitigated by the parties to ensure that any arbitration – just like the transaction underlying the parties’ relationship – reflects the parties’ clear agreement.
This panel will draw from a broad array of legal and business professionals to discuss the best approaches to negotiating, agreeing and drafting arbitration provisions. Recent case law will be discussed and considered to assist professionals in their assessment of arbitration for international matters.
