This remarkable and unprecedented guide to the practice of international arbitration – equally useful to party advisors, party representatives, arbitrators (especially newly practising ones), and advanced students – engagingly presents the riches of a leading arbitrator's lifetime of practical experience.

It is a Question-and-Answer book. An informal conversation. Easy and enjoyable to read, full of straightforward, useful examples and entertaining, often amusing, anecdotes. The book even touches on the history and philosophy of international arbitration.

Anticipating just about every question likely to arise in an arbitration (and some less Likely ones too), the author offers valuable insights into such matters as the following:-

  • preparing Procedural Order No. 1;
  • overcoming language difficulties;
  • how to organize an efficient hearing;
  • instructing interpreters;
  • instructing fact witnesses;
  • how to spot a lying witness;
  • when and how to argue the law;
  • how to draft awards;
  • dealing with dissenting arbitrators;
  • removal or replacement of arbitrators;
  • handling personal challenges; and
  • costs submissions.

An enormously useful Appendix contains 22 of the author’s own templates and checklists, including a comprehensive Procedural Order No. 1 and Procedural Timetable. This books clearly sets itself apart from any comparable handbook in the field. For many arbitrators and counsel, it will become the most frequently used resource when sensible, realistic and wise guidance is called for.
