The ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR is releasing a new guide for In-House Counsel and other party representatives in International Arbitration.

The Guide provides in-house counsel and other party representatives with a checklist for the procedural decisions that need to be made at each principal phase of an arbitration. It is a practical tool kit in making effective time and cost decisions based upon a cost-benefit analysis. Useful in both large and small cases, it enables in-house counsel worldwide to participate effectively in the tailor making process throughout the arbitration proceedings.

Who should attend?

All local, regional and international professionals involved in international trade and international arbitration: businesses, government representatives, in-house counsel, lawyers and arbitrators.
