ICC YAF: Expedited and Emergency Procedures in International Arbitration: When is Faster Better?

Chicago, United States, • English

Join us for a lively discussion with our panelists, as well as an update on the latest developments concerning ICC arbitration in this event organized jointly by ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (ICC YAF) and the United States Council for International Business (USCIB).

Description

Please join the ICC Young Arbitrators Forum and USCIB for a panel discussion, “Expedited and Emergency Procedures in International Arbitration: When is Faster Better?” moderated by Kirkland partner Javier Rubinstein.

Over the years, parties in international arbitration increasingly have looked for ways to speed up the process and obtain quick and effective remedies. International arbitral institutions have responded by offering expedited arbitration procedures and the ability to seek interim measures on an emergency basis. On March 1, 2017, the ICC launched its “Expedited Procedure Rules,” in addition to its 2012 Emergency Arbitration procedures. With these options now available, what are the benefits and challenges associated with emergency and expedited arbitration? When should such procedures be utilized?

Who should attend?

This panel is aimed at practising lawyers, corporate counsel, arbitrators, mediators, business professionals, academics and young practitioners.
