The ultimate goal of the latest revision of the ICC Arbitration rules is to further increase the efficiency, transparency and ethics of ICC arbitrations providing for a streamlined arbitration with reduced scales of fees.
Effective as of 1 March 2017, the revised rules provide that expedited procedure rules automatically apply to all arbitrations with amounts in dispute below US$2 million. Other changes comprise the possibility for any party to be in a position to ask the ICC Court to provide reasons for its decisions, such as decisions on challenges of arbitrators (without need to seek consent of all of the parties, as required under the previous Rules), prima facie jurisdictional decisions and consolidations.
Other topics will include:
- Post-merger and acquisition disputes
- Arbitration & Insolvency
- Regional challenges to arbitration
Who should attend?
- Practising lawyers
- Corporate counsel
- Business professionals and academics coming from or doing business in Europe, with focus on ADRIA region
