This third edition of International Arbitration Law and Practice has been largely enriched by covering international commercial arbitrations, investment treaty arbitrations, arbitrations between public bodies, between states and individuals, the UNCITRAL model law and Iran-US Tribunal proceedings as well as commodity arbitration, online arbitration and sports arbitral proceedings. International Arbitration Law and Practice, 3rd edition elaborates new concepts such as a definition of international arbitration based on procedural law (different from transnational law) and a doctrine (the tronc commun doctrine) to identify the applicable substantive law on disputes between parties belonging to different countries. It further suggests that a law of international arbitration has arisen from the various conventions and laws. Besides dealing with all the aspects of arbitration on a topic by topic basis, the writer presents a third generation arbitration which builds on analysis of major obstacles to a smooth running arbitration.International Arbitration Law and Practice, 3rd edition is a work that anyone involved in arbitral proceedings will find to be absolutely indispensable.

This book expounds the theory of international arbitration law. It explains in easily accessible terms all the fundamentals of arbitration, from separability of the arbitration agreement to competence-competence over procedural autonomy, finality of the award, and many other concepts. It does so with a focus on international arbitration law and jurisprudence in Switzerland, a global leader in the field. With a broader reach than a commentary of Chapter 12 of the Swiss Private International Law Act, the discussion contains numerous references to comparative law and its developments in addition to an extensive review of the practice of international tribunals. Written by two well-known specialists - Professor Kaufmann-Kohler being one of the leading arbitrators worldwide and Professor Rigozzi one of the foremost experts in sports arbitration - the work reflects many years of experience in managing arbitral proceedings involving commercial, investment, and sports disputes. This expertise is the basis for the solutions proposed to resolve the many practical issues that may arise in the course of an arbitration. It also informs the discussion of the arbitration rules addressed in the book, from the ICC Arbitration Rules to the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration, the CAS Code, and the UNCITRAL Rules. While the book covers commercial and sports arbitrations primarily, it also applies to investment arbitrations conducted under rules other than the ICSID framework.

Increasingly, and to a greater degree than most national jurisdictions, France encourages and favours private arbitration as the normal and usual method for the resolution of disputes arising from international economic relations. In this new edition of the standard English-language work on French arbitration law and practice, the authors examine this trend as rules and practices developed in international arbitration have taken hold in French domestic arbitration and vice versa. Accordingly, the authors present the French arbitral process as one entire system of dispute resolution, which consists of various stages from the formation of the arbitration agreement to enforcement of the award, without dividing the subject into the formally distinct parts of domestic and international arbitration. The new edition highlights such features of this dynamic body of arbitration law as the following: characterization of international arbitration by French courts; cases which require decisions by a national court or authority; cases where inarbitrability arises from protection of the weaker party to a contract; cases where the decision sought would infringe a general rule of public policy; authority and duties of the arbitral tribunal; rights, obligations and liabilities of arbitrators; the time factor in the conduct of arbitral proceedings; tender and reception of evidence; substantive rules of law; the immediate effect and consequences of the arbitral award; order for enforcement of the award in France (exequatur); contesting orders of the juge de l'exequatur; grounds common to annulment of awards and refusal of enforcement; enforceability of awards pending challenge; enfocement of awards against states; and relationship of French Law with the New York Convention, 1958. At each stage the authors emphasize variations arising in international arbitration. The presentation also takes account, with comments at relevant points, of the influential 2006 Draft Reform of the Comité Français de l'Arbitrage. A highly useful annex reprints relevant French legislation with English translation, as well as the texts of major international arbitration conventions and an extensive bibliography. The objective of the book is to present a modern and efficient arbitration system, not only to readers who are encountering it for the first time, but also to those who, although well-versed in it, might benefit from a text in English, with the comparisons to common law provisions such an undertaking entails. Any practitioner or academic interested in the field of international arbitration and the enforcement of foreign awards will welcome this very useful and informative work.

The new rules of the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC) that came into effect on 1 May 2012 are widely recognized as the full commitment of the Chinese government to the international arbitration system. Clarifications of the scope of the Arbitration Law to include contractual disputes, disputes over rights and interests in property, and disputes between legal persons and other organizations, as well as the firm establishment of the arbitration agreement as the sole and exclusive basis for founding the jurisdiction of an arbitral tribunal, greatly allay any residual apprehension on the part of foreign investors. This third edition of a book that has been widely relied upon since 2003 by business people and their counsel with interests in China is the first publication to offer comprehensive and authoritative coverage of the CIETAC Rules 2012. In addition to the matchless features for which earlier editions are so greatly valued - such as in-depth coverage of enforcement of foreign judgements in China and of Chinese judgements elsewhere, measures to overcome local protectionism, effects of China's most important bilateral investment treaties (BITs), and arbitration-related interpretations of the Supreme People's Court - the new edition highlights such aspects of the CIETAC Rules 2012 as the following: the new mechanism of consolidation of arbitrations; power to grant interim measures via the forms of procedural orders or interim awards; procedure of suspension of arbitration; conservator measures; interlocutory award and partial award; combining conciliation with arbitration; and expedited process under a new summary procedure. With first-hand expert guidance on the actual handling of arbitration cases, recommended arbitration agreement clauses for numerous contingencies, case studies and comparative cases to elucidate the handling of specific issues, abundant legal instruments for quick, direct reference to the relevant law, and an annex with English texts of the most important laws and regulations, this book offers all the details and insights a practitioner needs. While Arbitration Law and Practice in China is primarily a detailed, practical examination of Chinese arbitration practice and related laws, the Third Edition's special significance lies in its thorough and timely coverage of the CIETAC Rules 2012. For this reason especially it will be of great practical value to business people everywhere operating or seeking opportunities to partner with Chinese enterprises. It will also be useful to corporate counsel, arbitration institutions, and students of dispute resolution.

Arbitration of International Business Disputes 2nd edition is a fully revised and updated anthology of essays by Rusty Park, a leading scholar in international arbitration and a sought-after arbitrator for both commercial and investment treaty cases. This collection focuses on controversial questions in arbitration of trade, financial, and investment disputes. The essays address some of the most interesting topics in cross-border business dispute resolution, many of which have endured over several decades and remain subject to radically different views. Examples include the proper role of judicial review, the allocation of jurisdictional tasks, evolution of arbitration's statutory and treaty framework, free trade and bilateral investment agreements, and the balance between fixed rules and arbitral discretion. The book is structured around three themes: arbitration's legal framework; the conduct of arbitral proceedings; and a comparison of arbitration in specific fields such as finance, intellectual property, and taxation. In each of these areas, analysis includes the tensions between fairness and efficiency, and the accurate application of substantive law as well as the implications of mandatory procedural norms. Augmented by more than a dozen new contributions and a revised introduction, this 2nd edition retains all of its earlier practical and scholarly relevance, and includes a Foreword by V. V. (Johnny) Veeder QC.

"The focus of Arbitration Law and Practice in Central and Eastern Europe is to provide an understanding of the involvement of state authority in arbitrations and offer practical ideas on arbitration procedures for countries in this region. Adopting a questionnaire format devised by the editors, issues are investigated from both the arbitrator's and the counsel's perspectives and important tactical issues are discussed. It is inevitable, however, that the reader may occasionally be disappointed to find an unanswered question. The editors, authors and contributors ask for patience as the reader tries to find specific answers to questions which would not have been posed ten years ago. Case law is generally sparse in these countries, legal reforms are recent, and therefore the legal writing is limited and does not cover the entire array of questions that may arise. The book is an indispensable reference and guide for arbitrators and party representatives who are engaged in arbitrations in the region."--Publisher's website.

The Law and Practice of Arbitration is a comprehensive treatise about the development and practice of arbitration law in the United States. It addresses in detail the recourse to arbitration in domestic matters -- employment, labor, consumer transactions, and business -- and its use in the resolution of international commercial claims. It covers all of the major subject areas in the field and provides practical advice as well as an easy-to-read, clear discussion of the relevant case law. It represents a masterful synthesis of the entire body of arbitration law. It discusses basic concepts and doctrines, the FAA, freedom of contract in arbitration, arbitrability, the enforcement of awards, the use of arbitration in consumer and employment matters, institutional arbitration, and the drafting of arbitration agreements. It speaks of the federalization of the law and growing judicial objections to the use of adhesionary arbitration agreements in the consumer context, The volume represents the author's continuing in-depth reflection on the practical and systemic consequences of United States Supreme Court's decisional law on arbitration -- a process that is instrumental to the operation of the United States legal system as well as international business. The work continues its tradition of being the best statement on U.S. arbitration law and practice. The Law and Practice of Arbitration is a handy reference for all who have an interest in arbitration law and practice. The new Fifth Edition of Carbonneau’s treatise is built upon a comprehensive update of the federal circuit and U.S. Supreme Court cases on arbitration. The Introduction has been rewritten to take into account AT & T Mobility v. Concepcion and the American Express Merchants’ Litigation in the development of U.S. arbitration law. These decisions represent landmark USSC pronouncements on adhesive arbitration. The Introduction also contains a new section on the foundational legitimacy of arbitration in the U.S. legal system. The two landmark decisions are also incorporated into the text of Chapter 8 on the topic of adhesive arbitration. Chapter 9 on the award enforcement assesses the standing of Stolt-Nielsen in light of the Court’s recent decision in Sutter, asking whether this re-evaluation might be a de facto reversal of the earlier and highly unusual opinion. The assessment takes into account Justice Alito’s concurring opinion in Sutter. Chapter 10 on International Commercial Arbitration has undergone substantial rewriting and makes its various points more lucidly and effectively. This is also true of chapters 2, 3, and 5. Many footnotes have been perfected in form and content. The per curiam opinions---KPMG LLP v. Cocchi, Marmet Health Care v. Brown, and Nitro-Lift v. Howard---are all integrated into the text and fully assessed. The USSC’s decision in CompuCredit v. Greenwood is evaluated for its significance on the issue of Congressional intent to preclude arbitration. There are updates on how the courts define arbitration, the waiver of the right to arbitrate (in particular, the Ninth Circuit opinion in Richards v. Ernst & Young), the enforcement of arbitration agreement, with emphasis upon the curious Third Circuit decision on the matter in Guidotti, the latest adherents to the ill-conceived RUAA, the Ninth Circuit’s favorable response to AT&T Mobilty in Mortensen and Murphy, and an assessment of recent developments on the judicial imposition of penalties for frivolous vacatur actions. The treatise continues to be a highly contemporary and complete statement on the law of arbitration.

In a three-day symposium held at the School of International Arbitration, Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS), Queen Mary University of London, on the occasion of its twentieth anniversary in April 2005, a stellar array of practitioners and academics undertook the task of taking a fresh look at some of the persistent legal and practice issues of international arbitration. The conference and this book derived from it illustrate the combination of the scholarly and the highly practical which has characterised the mission of the School of International Arbitration since its establishment in 1985. These insightful papers demonstrate not only the increasing breadth and scope of the subject, but also the way in which many of its themes and issues cross legal and disciplinary boundaries and pose questions for the future of the law and arbitration practice in an internationalised world. These include: and• public policy; and• mandatory rules; and• confidentiality; and• provisional measures; and• res judicata; and• costs; and• amicus briefs; and• groups of companies; and• parallel proceedings; and and• anti-suit injunctions.
