ICC YAF: Nuts & Bolts of International Arbitration – Effective cost management

Beirut, Lebanon, • English

Second in a series of ICC YAF conferences in Beirut, this edition is organized in collaboration with the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK). This conference will focus on the nuts and bolts of cost issues in international arbitration.
This conference aims to provide the participants with expert advice on how to save time and costs in arbitration proceedings and how to rule on costs issues as a tribunal.


Costs issues are among the most critical issues in international arbitration. At a time when the efficiency of arbitration as a system of dispute settlement is under scrutiny due to the increasingly high costs incurred by the parties in the process, it is important to analyse costs issues and identify the means to deal with time and costs from both arbitrator’s and counsel’s perspective.

The ICC YAF conference is the ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration and to expand their professional network in the region.

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.
