This is the first comprehensive, in-depth analysis of the law and practice of domestic and international arbitration in New Zealand and is destined to become an indispensable aid to those practising in this field.
It is written primarily for practising lawyers, arbitrators and judges. It will also provide an invaluable resource for students of arbitration. Since New Zealand is an UNCITRAL Model Law jurisdiction it will also be of interest to arbitration specialists in other Model Law countries, especially those in the Asia-Pacific region.
The authors bring to this task extensive practical and theoretical knowledge of both domestic and international arbitration. David A R Williams QC, is a member of Bankside Chambers (Auckland and Singapore) and Essex Court Chambers, London and is widely regarded as New Zealand’s foremost international arbitrator and one of the world’s outstanding international commercial arbitrators. He is an Honorary Professor of Law at the University of Auckland where he has taught international arbitration for many years.
Co-author, Amokura Kawharu, studied arbitration at Cambridge University and practised law with Chapman Tripp in Auckland. She now lectures in arbitration at the Auckland Law School. She has published many articles on arbitration in leading overseas journals including Arbitration International and is a frequent speaker at arbitration events in New Zealand. With David Williams, she writes the arbitration section of the New Zealand Law Review.
