Marriott Hotel


Arbitration Committee (Lead)
European Regional Forum (Lead)


An analysis of the current mainstream system of document production in international arbitration and suggestions as to the possibility of improving it. • Have Redfern schedules gone out of control? • Are there ways to limit excesses effectively? • Do arbitral tribunals actually make adverse inferences? • How can privilege work in international arbitration with so many different legal systems involved, each of them with its own approach of the issue?
