ICC YAF: Arbitrator Conflicts: The Art of Disclosing

Belgrade, Serbia, • English

ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (ICC YAF) is organizing its first conference in Belgrade. This conference will focus on the checks and balances between arbitrator’s duty to disclose conflicts in light of the existing guidelines and the consequences of a failure to disclose a potential conflict.

Description

The ICC Rules require that the prospective arbitrator discloses to the Secretariat any facts or circumstances which might be of such nature as to call into question the arbitrator’s independence in the eyes of the parties, as well as any circumstances that could give rise to reasonable doubts as to the arbitrator’s impartiality.

Many important issues relating to arbitrator disclosures are however still unresolved and a number of grey areas remain which have given rise to diverse case law in various jurisdictions.

The panel will discuss these obligations and share their respective experience.

Who should attend?

This conference is aimed at young arbitration practitioners of approximately 40 years or under: counsel, arbitrators, corporate counsel or academics. The ICC YAF Conference is an ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration and to enrich their network in the region.
