Dispositive Motions in International Arbitration: New Opportunities to Save Time and Money

Chicago, United States, • English

Join the ICC International Court of Arbitration and the United States Council for International Business/ICC USA (USCIB) for an informative lunch programme to discuss the advantages and potential disadvantages of the increasing use of dispositive motions in international arbitration.


Traditionally disfavoured in international arbitration, arbitral institution rules increasingly allow for summary judgment-type motions where claims and defenses may be granted or dismissed without a hearing on the merits, potentially resolving or significantly streamlining the proceedings.

This panel will discuss circumstances when dispositive motions should be sought or permitted, potential advantages and disadvantages, and other considerations such as award enforcement. The programme will also provide an update on new policies and developments at the ICC Court.

Who should attend?

Practising lawyers, corporate counsel, arbitrators, mediators, business professionals and academics from around the world.
