The global increase in cross-border transactions has led to a rising trend in international disputes. International arbitration has become the preferred dispute resolution method, as companies and individuals increasingly favour a neutral international tribunal over foreign domestic courts. This new edition provides a practical guide to international arbitration. Written by leading experts Stuart Dutson from Simmons & Simmons, Andy Moody from Baker McKenzie and Neil Newing from Signature Litigation, this title explains the stages of the arbitration process in a straightforward manner and from a practitioner's perspective. The authors provide guidance on drafting the arbitration agreement, commencing arbitration, selecting the arbitral tribunal, drafting pleadings and evidence, managing oral hearings, liaising with the tribunal throughout the arbitral process and enforcing the final award. Numerous tips, examples and precedents are included to help the new practitioner or interested student understand each stage of the arbitration proceedings. The second edition provides an update to take into account the rule changes that have been adopted by arbitral institutions in the six years since the first edition was published, and to include up-to-date guidance on topical issues such as: third party funding in international arbitration; the increase in the number of multi-party arbitrations; procedural trends including the adoption of expedited timetables and guidance around the use of tribunal secretaries; and issues of ethics applicable to counsel and tribunals in cross-border disputes.
