A propos de l'ouvrage:

The Handbook of ICC Arbitration reviews the first two years’ practice under the 2012 ICC Rules on Arbitration. The authors provide an expert rule-by-rule analysis of the 2012 Rules based on first-hand experience as arbitrators, counsel and ICC Court members.

Hands-on guidance and real life cases

The Handbook gives practical guidance on how to conduct proceedings, with reference to

  • published and unpublished ICC awards and procedural orders,
  • the IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration (2010),
  • the IBA Rules on the Conflict of Interest in International Arbitration and
  • the IBA Guidelines on Party Representation in International Arbitration.

It also discusses recent case law in major centres of arbitration, including Dallah in the UK and in France, SNF in France, Yukos Oil, C v D, Sulamérica in the UK, Oxford Health Plans and COMMISA in the USA. The Handbook also provides examples of documents used in ICC Arbitration and includes a copy of the relevant laws from France, Switzerland, England, the United States as well as the UNCITRAL Model Law and the New York Convention.

Practical review of how ICC Arbitration works

An introductory commentary describes and analyses the Arbitral Tribunal and Proceedings. Further, this handbook covers and reviews the basic concepts in ICC arbitration, such as:

  • How the ICC Court functions in its Plenary and Court Sessions
  • The law applicable to and scope of the arbitration agreement
  • Arbitrability ( in particular under US law)
  • The differing approaches to non-signatories under various national laws
  • The annulment of Awards and enforcement of annulled awards

 Invaluable companion for arbitration and ADR practitioners, international litigation lawyers, in-house lawyers and National Governments alike, this publication provides in one volume what is needed to conduct an ICC arbitration wherever it may be held.
