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.

Public Policy Exception Under The New York Convention

Author: Anton G. Maurer
Publisher: Juris Publishing, Inc.
ISBN: 9781937518226
Release Date: 2013-06-01
Genre: Law

The Public Policy Exception under the New York Convention: History, Interpretation, and Application describes in detail the drafting history of the public policy exception of Art. V (2) (b) of the New York Convention in order to determine the purpose the signatory states wanted to achieve with this clause. The book also explains how this clause is applied by the courts in many economically relevant states, and especially in Brazil, Russia, India, and China. In September 2012, the Indian Supreme Court, in a case entitled Bharat Aluminium Co. v. Kaiser Aluminium Technical Service, Inc., announced a long expected decision practically reversing the judgments of Bhatia International and Venture Global and holding that Indian Courts are not permitted to set aside foreign arbitral awards. In this Revised Edition, the author explains and explores the reasoning of the Indian Supreme Court in this landmark decision and discusses the practical implications and consequences. Public Policy Exception under the New York Convention: History, Interpretation, and Application is of importance for all internationally active companies as well as for lawyers and courts. The book aids lawyers and companies in drafting arbitration clauses and in enforcing foreign arbitral awards. Often, judgments will not be enforced abroad; this is especially true with respect to an enforcement of foreign judgments in the BRIC countries. Therefore, internationally active companies and their advisors need guidance if and where foreign arbitral awards in their favor will be enforced abroad.
