Genre: Law

The Practitioner's Handbook on International Arbitration and Mediation, 3rd Edition is a unique work with each chapter written by a well-known practitioner and expert in the field. It covers each step of the international arbitration and mediation process and offers separate chapters that summarize the laws of leading arbitral venues. This Handbook is intended to make the reader into a better practitioner or arbitrator/mediator. Moreover, each chapter has been written to provide practical advice and guidance. Unlike many works with multiple authors, this work is not simply a collection of essays on a general subject. This book is a unified work with cross references among the chapters and a consistent format throughout. The Practitioner's Handbook is divided into three parts. Part One describes in detail each step of the international arbitration process and offers tips. Part Two deals with each step and facet of an international mediation. Each of these chapters is filled with Practitioners’ Expert Commentary. Part Three summarizes the laws of leading arbitral jurisdictions, like Hong Kong, England, Switzerland, and France. These chapters give you detailed guidance on the laws governing international arbitration in that particular jurisdiction. As a result, the chapters in Part Three are a bit more technical as the authors realized that the reader would need citations to and commentary on the local arbitration statutes and rules. The CD ROM that accompanies this Work contains relevant original source material that is germane to the text. A review of the table of contents of the material contained on the CD ROM will acquaint you with the range of material covered.

The Yearbook will once again be produced on an annual basis.

The book contains 130 case digests, together with citations and descriptive cross-references to more than 400 related decisions. Recognizing the important role of arbitration in the global economy, there is a separate chapter containing digests and cross-references to cases dealing with the unique issues presented in international arbitrations. Part Two consists of articles that address a wide range of timely and important arbitration topics, including a comprehensive report on the extraordinary range of services that the AAA provides and a detailed overview of the international activities of the AAA/ICDR, including a report on the successful implementation of the ICDR's pre-arbitral emergency arbitrator procedure, the first such procedure to be adopted by any arbitral institution as a standard part of its rules.

Section 1782; and several timely practice pointers for parties seeking discovery in aid of arbitration. The AAA Yearbook re-establishes itself as the preeminent annual yearbook on Arbitration and Dispute Resolution in the United States.

College of Commercial Arbitrators Guide to Best Practices in Commercial Arbitration Third Edition

Author: James M. Gaitis
Publisher: Juris Publishing, Inc.
ISBN: 9781937518301
Release Date: 2014-01-01
Genre: Arbitration agreements, Commercial

This third edition of The College of Commercial Arbitrators Guide to Best Practices in Commercial Arbitration has been substantially expanded not only to ensure that it is up to date but, also, to incorporate several new chapters on diverse subjects, including intratribunal relations, arbitrators’ fees, eDiscovery, and hybrid arbitration processes. Summary of New Material •Twice as long as the second edition •Substantial revision and expansion of existing chapters •Four new chapters (Arbitrators Fees & Expenses, eDiscovery, Intratribunal Relations, Hybrid Arbitration Proceedings) •Updated to take into account evolving case law and to address newly emerging issues relating to the management of commercial arbitrations •Comparative tables regarding certain aspects of in major international rules and international arbitration institution policies •Revised to take into account: ♦The new 2013 CPR Administered Arbitration Rules ♦The 2013 revisions to the AAA Commercial Rules ♦Various protocols and guidelines relating to domestic commercial arbitration ♦The 2011 revisions to the JAMS International Rules ♦The 2012 revisions to the ICDR Articles ♦The 2010 revisions to the UNCITRAL Rules ♦The 2013 IBA Guidelines on Party Representation in International Arbitration ♦The 2010 revisions to the IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration ♦Various protocols and guidelines relating to domestic commercial arbitration The aim of the Guide is to identify best practices that arbitrators can employ to provide users of arbitration with the highest possible standards of economy and fairness in the disposition of business disputes. This third edition of the Guide refines the guidance contained in the first and second editions to take into account developing case law, revised institutional rules, advancements in arbitration techniques and thinking, and also addresses newly evolving issues such as electronic discovery. There are significant differences in the ways in which arbitrations are conducted in different substantive fields of commerce and among different arbitrators in the same field. Techniques that are appropriate and useful in one case may be quite unsuited to another. For this reason, it is not possible to prescribe a single set of best practices that commercial arbitrators should invariably follow in every case. Rather, this Guide attempts to identify the principal issues that typically arise in each successive stage of an arbitration and to explain the pros and cons of various preferred ways of handling each issue. From this perspective, the best practice for an arbitrator is to carefully consider the merits of alternative techniques available for dealing with a particular issue and to then select the technique best suited to the situation. In addition, the Guide attempts to identify the full array of practices available for use in complex arbitrations, which can be adapted and streamlined for simpler cases. Formed in 2001, the College of Commercial Arbitrators is a non-profit organization composed of prominent, experienced commercial arbitrators who believe that a national association of commercial arbitrators can provide a meaningful contribution to the profession, to the public, and to the businesses and lawyers who depend on arbitration as a primary means of dispute resolution. Its mission includes promoting professionalism and high ethical practice in commercial arbitration, adopting and maintaining standards of conduct, providing peer training and professional development, and developing and publishing "best practices" materials. This work is the College's principal vehicle for fulfilling several aspects of its mission. Many seasoned and knowledgeable practitioners generously contributed their time and insights to the creation of this Guide.
