Content

Arbitration is growing in importance and volume as a dispute resolution method. In the international arena, it is one of the most common ways to resolve commercial disputes. It is the main alternative to litigation, allowing disputes to be resolved by an expert tribunal, confidentially and speedily. The legal and practical issues are technical and complex, and anyone representing clients in this area has to understand not only the basic concepts but also the international reference materials, and the different legal cultures which exist.
