This book guides corporate counsel through all aspects of an arbitration. As arbitration has become the standard for international business, corporate counsel at multi-national companies are required to offer advice on a legal system which differs from their own.

It covers questions such as:-

  • Do we really need arbitration in our contract (and if so, what arbitration best suits my company and contract)?
  • How much will it cost (arbitrators, counsel, experts, etc)?
  • How long will it take (not just time tables, but realistically)?
  • What can I do to reduce the costs and time?
  • What am I looking for when appointing an arbitrator?
  • Do I really need to hire outside counsel?
  • Do I really need to hire "local counsel"?
  • If we are aggrieved, will arbitration allow effective recovery?
  • How much will arbitration cost?
  • How will arbitration affect the relationship with the opponent and do we care?
  • Should we go to court or pursue ADR instead, whether or not required/allowed by contract?
  • What about investment treaty remedies?
  • If we are natural defendant, should we wait for claimant to sue or take the initiative?
The title will provide International Corporate Counsel with a practical and yet exhaustive overview of international arbitration.
