Due to the nature of the arbitration process, provisional measures-especially interim protection of rights-tend to play a disproportionate role in international commercial arbitrations. Indeed, the need to clearly define such measures often constitutes the major stumbling block on the path to an effective resolution of a commercial dispute. This concise but enormously useful volume offers practitioners the information and advice they need to overcome this obstacle in the best possible way every time. The Author covers all the relevant avenues of research and practice, from an overview of the concept of provisional measures to an in-depth analysis of the weight and enforceability of such measures. Along the way the treatment covers such crucial topics and issues as the following: scholarly analysis of the problems and uncertainties surrounding provisional measures, and their solutions in light of arbitral and judicial practice; the complex interaction of historical prejudices, political will, and business needs that impact the usefulness of provisional measures; choice of forum to seek provisional measures and the problems associated with such choice; complementary mechanisms to arbitration for interim protection of rights; standards of principles and procedures for the grant of provisional measures; and a comprehensive review of the arbitrators' power to grant provisional measures and court assistance to arbitration. The presentation examines, compares, and analyses seventy sets of arbitration rules on provisional measures (including the arbitration rules of the ICC, AAA, and LCIA), all of the major state laws on commercial arbitration, and detailed analyses of numerous ICC and AAA awards, most of which have not been published before. This new and fully researched book fulfils and important need for user-friendly and complete practical coverage of provisional measures in international commercial arbitration. It wil be of great value to corporate counsel, international lawyers, and business people, as well as to students of dispute resolution.

There has been an exponential rise in the use of ICA for resolving international business disputes, yet international arbitration is a scarcely regulated, specialty industry. International Commercial Arbitration: An Asia Pacific Perspective is the first book to explain ICA topic by topic with an Asia Pacific focus. Written for students and practising lawyers alike, this authoritative book covers the principles of ICA thoroughly and comparatively. For each issue it utilises academic writings from Asia, Europe and elsewhere, and draws on examples of legislation, arbitration procedural rules and case law from the major Asian jurisdictions. Each principle is explained with a simple statement before proceeding to more technical, theoretical or comparative content. Real-world scenarios are employed to demonstrate actual application to practice. International Commercial Arbitration is an invaluable resource that provides unique insight into real arbitral practice specific to the Asia Pacific region, within a global context.

This book provides both experienced and inexperienced practitioners, as well as advanced students, with a guide to the strategies associated with researching international commercial arbitration as well as the sources associated with that field of law. Up until very recently, the field of international commercial arbitration was populated solely by specialists who knew the sources and strategies for researching relevant authorities. However, as the practice and business of law has become more international and more diversified, generalists have begun to enter the field while the number of specialized sources associated with international commercial arbitration has grown exponentially. The book combines instructional text with a bibliography of sources to teach readers where to find relevant material. The instructional chapters discuss the most important methods by which one conducts research in international arbitration, while the bibliography provides guidance on where to find that material. Furthermore, the book will offer tips on how to present a case to an international tribunal, which is quite different than presenting a case to a national court. In effect, the book walks the reader through the steps associated with researching and presenting issues in international commercial arbitration. For example, the book covers: ·Where to find reported international arbitral awards (as opposed to judicial decisions) ·Where to find specialist treatises and journal articles on international arbitration ·How to use the various sources and evaluate the weight of competing authority ·How to present one's findings to an international arbitral panel ·How to consider the special issues that relate to international arbitration Additionally, the book takes advantage of empirical research into the conduct of arbitration, giving an insider's view of the process.

Where indicated national arbitration acts as well as various predrafted arbitration rules are compared and differences are highlighted. For those who want to get acquainted with international commercial arbitration or seek guidance with regard to a specific question that may arise in the course of an international commercial arbitration this book provides a convenient work.
This book examines the formation, nature and effect of the arbitrators’ contract, addressing topics such as the appointment, challenge, removal and duties and rights of arbitrators, disputing parties and arbitration institutions. The arguments made in the book are based on a semi-autonomous theory of the juridical nature of international arbitration and a contractual theory of the legal nature of these relationships. From these premises, the book analyses the formation of the arbitrator’s contract in both ad hoc and institutional references. It also examines the institution’s contract with the disputing parties and its effect on the arbitrator’s contract under institutional references. The book draws from national arbitration laws and institutional rules in various jurisdictions to give a global view of the issues examined in it. The arbitrator’s contract is analysed from a global perspective of arbitral law and practice with insights from various jurisdictions in Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America. The primary focus of the book is an analysis of the formation of the arbitrator’s contract and the terms of this contract and the institution’s contract. The primary question of the consequences (if any) of the breaches of the terms of these contracts and its impact on the exclusion or limitation of liability of arbitrators and institutions is also analysed with the conclusion that since these transactions are contractual and the terms can be categorised as in any normal contract, then normal contractual remedies can be applied to the breaches of these terms. International Commercial Arbitration and the Arbitrator’s Contract will be of great value to arbitration practitioners and researchers in arbitration. It will also be very useful to students of arbitration on the topics of arbitrators and arbitration institution.
