Arbitration in Practice: a close look at the IBA Guidelines on Party Representation in International Arbitration

Arbitration in Practice: a close look at the IBA Guidelines on Party Representation in International Arbitration

Part 4 of a 4-part webinar series

A webinar presented by the IBA Asia Pacific Arbitration Group, supported by the IBA Arbitration Committee and the IBA Asia Pacific Regional Forum

11 SEP 2020 0930 – 1100 BST

While it is widely accepted that the arbitrators running an arbitration will to a great degree determine both the integrity and efficiency of the proceedings, counsel also play a significant, if not equally important, role in the equation. International arbitration proceedings, being in a sense detached from any particular set of professional conduct rules or ethical codes, provide opportunities for party representatives to engage in “guerrilla tactics”.

The Guidelines seek to address this predicament by enunciating a set of norms and practices for party representatives, which includes not only counsel but any person who makes submissions, arguments or representations to a tribunal on behalf of a party, to ensure the fairness and integrity of arbitral proceedings. By taking the participants through the Guidelines, the participants will learn how to conduct arbitrations with professional integrity, which will ultimately translate to savings in costs for clients and a more readily enforceable arbitral award.
