Efficient management of arbitral proceedings, especially in terms of time and cost, will be discussed during the second half of the day. How does institutional arbitration, in particular ICC arbitration, remedy to the proliferation of arbitral proceedings that have sometimes become excessively lengthy and costly for users? Speakers will debate and discuss questions such as: the interplay between arbitration and mediation, the Expedited Procedures Provisions (EPP) introduced in the 2017 revision of the Rules, as well as other less familiar tools made available to the arbitrator such as the summary dismissals to favor an efficient, rapid and fair resolution of the arbitral proceedings.
In this context, is the arbitrator entitled to play a more pro-active role and as such a more controversial one – in favoring a fair, optimal and efficient resolution of the dispute while respecting due process?
