This book guides practitioners and corporate counsel through all aspects of an arbitration. As arbitration has become the standard for international business, corporate counsel at multi-national companies are required to offer advice on a legal system which differs from their own. It covers questions such as: Do we really need arbitration in our contract (and if so, what arbitration best suits my company and contract)? How much will it cost (arbitrators, counsel, experts, etc)? How long will it take (not just time tables, but realistically)? What can I do to reduce the costs and time? What am I looking for when appointing an arbitrator? Do I really need to hire outside counsel? Do I really need to hire qlocal counselq? If we are aggrieved, will arbitration allow effective recovery? How much will arbitration cost? How will arbitration affect the relationship with the opponent and do we care? Should we go to court or pursue ADR instead, whether or not required/allowed by contract? What about investment treaty remedies? If we are natural defendant, should we wait for claimant to sue or take the initiative? The title will provide International Corporate Counsel with a practical and yet exhaustive overview of international arbitration.This book guides practitioners and corporate counsel through all aspects of an arbitration.
