International arbitration is the preferred method for the settlement of international business disputes. As a private, autonomous and international dispute resolution mechanism arbitration has become independent from national laws in practice. This new and comprehensive treatise addresses all significant issues pertaining to international arbitration. The perspective is international and comparative and reference is made to all major international treaties and instruments, arbitration rules and national laws. The authors trace the realities of international arbitration practice, i.e. what parties and arbitrators do, how arbitration is conducted, and the principles pertaining to the arbitration agreement, the formation, role and functions of the arbitration tribunal, and the importance and effect of the arbitration award. These are illustrated by published awards, international instruments and arbitration rules, and national court decisions recognising and giving effect to these autonomous international arbitration practices. At every stage of the arbitration process there remains a conceptual legal conflict between the inherent international and autonomous character of arbitration and the national laws of the parties, the place of arbitration, and the place where the award is to be enforced. These issues are reviewed with particular reference to national constitutional and regulatory systems, the effect of mandatory laws of connected states, and European and international law including international human rights instruments. The book describes participation in international arbitration of states and state entities, and the interaction between commercial and investment arbitrations. No two international arbitrations are the same. This book analyses the various structures, practical arrangements, procedures and legal implications for arbitrations wherever the arbitration takes place. It also provides a guide for lawyers involved in the international arbitration process whatever the nationality of the parties and the composition of the tribunal. The book is an indispensable tool for practising and academic lawyers concerned with international trade law, international litigation and commercial arbitration. It is also an essential guide for those seeking to understand a particular issue in international arbitration

Arbitration is an essential component in business. In an age when transparency is a maxim, important issues which the laws governing arbitration currently fail to address are the extent to which disclosure of information can be constrained by private agreement along with the extent to which the duty to preserve confidentiality can be stretched. Absent a coherent legal framework and extensive qualitative and quantitative data, it is equally difficult to suggest and predict future directions. This book offers a tool for attaining centralised access to otherwise fragmentary and dispersed material, as well as a comprehensive analysis and detailed exposition of the position in relation to confidentiality in arbitration in the jurisdictions of England, USA, France and Germany.

The book deals with set-off in international arbitration proceedings. In these proceedings, set-off is frequently the tool relied upon to resist a claim. At the same time, the legal intricacies make it hard to use. The first part of the book provides a survey of set-off, including its definition, significance and functions. The second part offers a thorough comparative analysis of selected European laws of set-off and reveals the dramatic differences between them. The third and last part of the book deals with the problematic consequences of these differences and shows the limits and the inadequacy of the traditional choice-of-law doctrines. While demonstrating how to overcome the practical hurdles of the present situation, the third part also offers normative alternatives that should provide significant help in the adjudication of commercial disputes.

About the author: Giacomo Marchisio is Academic Coordinator of the Private Justice and the Rule of Law Research Group at McGill University, Canada and holds a Doctorate in Civil Law (DCL) and an LL.M. in Comparative Law from the same university. He is a member of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Task Force on Emergency Arbitration, of ICC Canada, and Young Canadian Arbitration Practitioners (YCAP). About this book: The Notion of Award in International Commercial Arbitration aims to provide a comprehensive explanation of the notion of arbitral award in international commercial arbitration. International commercial arbitration relies extensively on the possibility of enforcing arbitral decisions against recalcitrant parties. As courts and arbitration laws across the world take contrasting approaches to the definition of awards, such enforcement can be problematic, especially in the context of awards by consent and the recent development known as 'emergency arbitration'. In this timely and groundbreaking book, a young arbitration scholar takes us through the difficulties of defining the notion of arbitral award with a rare combination of theoretical awareness and attention to the procedural requirements of arbitral practice. What's in this book: In a framework using a comparative analysis of common law and civil law jurisdictions (specifically, England and France) and how each has regulated in different ways the equilibria between state justice and arbitral justice, - and comparing each with the UNCITRAL Model Law - this book addresses such issues as the following: * the 'judicialization' of arbitration; * different models of arbitral adjudication and their impact on the notion of award; * what an award needs to contain to be enforceab≤ * awards on competence; * awards by consent; and * awards ante causam. The author employs a methodology that views arbitration as providing an institution for administering justice rather than as a purely contractual creature. To this end, rules of arbitral institutions (particularly the ICC) are examined closely for their implications on what an award means. How this will help you: Having a fresh look at the arbitral award by placing it in a broader context than is usually found, this book allows for a greater understanding of the functioning and evolution of contemporary international commercial arbitration. This book clarifies the status of controversial decisions, such as jurisdictional decisions, consent awards, and emergency orders. As an assessment to help readers determine which arbitral decisions should be qualified as awards, this book is sure to become an international reference for arbitrators, practitioners at global law firms, companies doing transnational business, interested academics, and international arbitration centres in emerging markets.

Arbitration is the normal and preferred mode for resolving international commercial disputes. It presents an essential advantage over national courts by offering neutrality of adjudication, but is currently only available where both parties have consented to it. This innovative book proposes a fundamental rethink of this assumption and argues that arbitration should become the default mode of resolution in international commercial disputes.
