Arbitrator appointment is one of the key aspects of international arbitration, and one on which an in-house counsel, an external counsel and an institution will have a different perspective. The definition of the “right” panel as well as appointment strategies and practicalities will be addressed and debated.
Beyond appointment, during the course of an arbitration, interactions will emerge and evolve between the different players. These interactions, which should be looked at in the context of cultural diversity, include situations such as bias, obstruction, default or challenge.
This event aims at identifying the strategic points, either at the appointment or at a later stage of an arbitration, and providing insights as well as practical tips about how to tackle them.
