Arbitration Awards Book Excerpt:

‘Drawing on his long and practical experience [the author gives] guidance which only the foolhardy would reject without good reason for doing so. With this manual beside him, many an arbitrator will, I feel sure, sleep the sounder.’ - The Rt Hon The Lord Bingham of Cornhill. The preparation of an arbitrator's award requires a rigorous approach to the consideration of submissions and evidence, and to the decisions stemming from that consideration, and the arbitrator must be competent to draft a valid and enforceable award. These tasks can be complex for any arbitrator, particularly so for the less experienced. This book has been written to provide clear and practical guidance, whilst emphasising that there is no standard method of preparing or writing an award. It includes illustrations relating to a wide range of types of award. It will be of interest to all arbitrators and those involved in the process, whether they are concerned with commodities, insurance, maritime matters, rent disputes, construction or commerce.

Practical Approach to Bank Lending Book Excerpt:

The book discusses about the methods and approaches used by banks in granting credits to their customers. The material covers the various types of lending and the processes involved in detail. It goes beyond the normal classroom rhetoric as it adopts a practical approach similar to having a hands-on-experience in lending. It is an ideal material for students of finance who need to understand the core rudiments for financial activities and to succeed in professional examinations. It is also useful for bank staff and researchers in the subject area to keep abreast of the banking procedure. I strongly recommend the material for finance students and lecturers in the field.

The book is a research statement on the contemporary concerns within international commercial arbitration, especially related to enforcement of foreign arbitral awards. Importantly, the book through a unique methodology of interface, presents the gratuitous nature of Article 34 of the UNCITRAL Model Law when read with Article V of the New York Convention, especially the plea to the States within Article VII of the same Convention to ease the restrictions and the process of enforceability of foreign arbitral awards. The book also articulates another important and immediate need with regard to international arbitration – the delimitation of public policy exception to recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards.

Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards in Theory and in Practice Book Excerpt:

This book initiates a discussion of the law and practice of recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards in both common law and civil law countries. In terms of law, this book principally focuses on the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards of 1958, and the harmony or clash between the New York Convention and national arbitration laws of both common law and civil law countries including the UK and the USA (as common law countries), and France, Germany and Greece (as civil law countries). In terms of practice, this book deeply and extensively examines the judicial application of the New York Convention in national courts of common law and civil law countries, and sheds light on the best practices related to the judicial application of the New York Convention, while also highlighting how future disputes can be resolved in national courts. As such, this book provides solutions for salient and recurring problems arising out of the erroneous judicial application or interpretation of the New York Convention by national courts, and encourages the adoption of a more liberal regime in favour of the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards generally, and the adoption of a more liberal interpretation of the New York Convention in national courts of both common law and civil law countries particularly. This book, which is based on more than 100 courts’ decisions from common law and civil law countries, is a valuable resource for academics, arbitrators, practicing lawyers, corporate counsels, law students and researchers interested in international commercial arbitration, as well as for business professionals involved in international trade, and those who are willing to solve their commercial disputes through arbitration.

International Commercial Arbitration Book Excerpt:

This book is the first-ever to explore commercial arbitration in the Ethiopian context. Alternative conflict resolution mechanisms are nothing new to the country: arbitration as a dispute settlement mechanism by which a third party issues a binding decision on a dispute between two or more parties by exercising the jurisdictional mandate conferred on it by the parties themselves was established with the adoption of the Civil Code in 1960. This pioneering book evaluates the extent to which Ethiopia’s laws and institutions allow disputing parties to effectively reap the benefits of international commercial arbitration. It interprets the relevant legislation and attempts to bridge the gaps in it, in order to help lawyers, arbitrators, arbitral institutions, academics and judges to understand and apply it. It also helps parties seeking to complete international transactions pertaining to Ethiopia make the right choice regarding conflict resolution.

Explaining Why You Lost Book Excerpt:

Generally speaking, the losing party is more interested than the winning party in understanding the reasons for the outcome of the proceeding. And yet, the requirement that, unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the award “shall state the reasons upon which it is based” is a widely recognized principle in international arbitration. The rules of most arbitral institutions also require that an award include reasons. This Institute Dossier addresses reasoning in International Commercial and Investment Arbitration Awards: Should an arbitrator state his reasons? Why? How extensive and/or complete must the reasoning be for the process to be fully comprehensible and thus legitimate to the parties? What may be the consequences of an unsatisfactory reasoning? Readers will get useful insights into the legal reasoning process by accessing data from a recent large-scale empirical study of legal reasoning in commercial disputes. They will also be treated to some creative writing tips in the hope that reading an award becomes a more interesting part of the job. The ICC Institute of World Business Law brings together the finest legal minds to strengthen links between international business practitioners and the legal profession. The Institute ‘Dossiers’ is a series that has gained international prestige. These Dossiers are the outcome of the Institute’s annual meetings, where experts from around the globe come together to discuss salient issues of international commercial law and arbitration.

Advanced Artificial Intelligence and Robo Justice Book Excerpt:

The book deals with digital technology which is transforming the landscape of dispute resolution. It illustrates the application of AI in the legal field and shows the future prospect of robo-justice for an AAI society in the advanced artificial intelligence era. In other words, the present justice system and the influence of current AI upon courts and arbitration are investigated. The transforming role of AI on all legal fields is examined thoroughly by giving answers concerning AI legal personality and liability. The analysis shows that digital technology is generating an ever-growing number of disputes and at the same time is challenging the effectiveness and reach of traditional dispute resolution avenues. To that extent, the book presents in tandem the impact of AI upon courts and arbitration, and reveals the role of AAI in generating a new robo-justice system. Finally, the end of the perplexing relation of courts and arbitration is evidenced methodically and comprehensively.

A Guide to the NAI Arbitration Rules Book Excerpt:

The Netherlands Arbitration Institute (NAI) is the most prestigious institute in the Netherlands for the arbitration of commercial disputes. While NAI arbitration is the dispute resolution mechanism of choice of many Dutch corporations and public entities, it is increasingly agreed on by foreign parties selecting the Netherlands as a neutral venue for their potential disputes. This excellent volume, a rule-by-rule guide to the NAI Arbitration Rules, is not only the first such handbook in English, but the most comprehensive and detailed in any language. In addition, it provides a unique commentary in English on important elements of Dutch arbitration law. Drawing on case law from arbitral tribunals and state courts and on extensive personal experience, members of the arbitration team of the Dutch law firm De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek N.V. provide in-depth commentary on each provision of the NAI Arbitration Rules and on arbitration-related court proceedings in the Netherlands under the Dutch Arbitration Act. Focusing on disputes arising from (among others) share purchase agreements, joint venture agreements, licence agreements, franchise agreements, finance agreements, contractor agreements, distribution agreements, and agreements for the sale of goods, the analysis covers such crucial factors of the NAI system as the following: the use of the list procedure for the appointment of arbitrators; the central role of the Administrator; the Dutch concept of binding advice; contractual relationships and exclusion of liability; the separability of the arbitration agreement; freedom in determining and applying rules of evidence; the mechanisms for parties to seek relief in summary arbitration proceedings; costs of arbitration; and the arbitral award, including the possibility of rectifying, supplementing and setting aside this award. The provision-by-provision analysis also compares the NAI Rules with both relevant proceedings in the Dutch state courts and, inter alia, ICC and UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules and to practice under such other rules. The authors of this matchless book have faced many questions on the NAI Arbitration Rules, advised on the interpretation and correct application of those Rules, and defended such interpretation before tribunals and courts. In this book they share their experience, insights, and expertise. Counsel for corporate clients and public entities contemplating arbitration proceedings and– as well as counsel to parties in NAI proceedings or related court proceedings and– will find here an incomparable guide to the NAI system and Dutch arbitration law.

Arbitral Awards as Investments Book Excerpt:

The rise of international investment arbitration has resulted in the emergence of a number of intriguing legal and political challenges. One of those is the question of whether or not arbitral awards may constitute investments pursuant to existing investment treaties. In approaching the problem, it is the interconnection between theory and practice that delivers solutions. This book presents the first detailed analysis of the existing tribunals’ approaches to date. In examining the principles of treaty interpretation, their application in arbitral practice, shortcomings and their ramifications and possible routes to improvement, the book addresses the following questions: - What is the foundation of interpretation in public international law and when is it adequately carried out? - Can arbitral awards constitute investments, offering relief from frustrated enforcement attempts? - Is there a trend of convergence of commercial and investment arbitration? - Do respective interpretative outcomes stem from adequate interpretation? - What are the ramifications, if interpretation is not fully adequate? - What are the feasible routes to greater interpretive discipline? The book is mindful of the underlying public international law principles, such as state sovereignty and the increasing legal and political dynamics of international investment law. This is the first in-depth treatise on arbitral awards’ qualification as investments within international investment law. Its detailed analysis of the interpretive approaches, their foundation and consequences will, from a theoretical and practical point of view, prove of great value to international tribunals, counsel and sovereign entities. Maximilian Clasmeier has gained international arbitration experience in the dispute resolution practices of international law firms in Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Singapore and worked for the World Bank Group in Washington, D.C.

Labor Employment Arbitration Book Excerpt:

This casebook presents material which both students and practitioners will find useful in analyzing, writing, and interpreting arbitration awards and cases. Unlike the traditional casebook, there are less theoretical concepts and historical developments. Instead, the book includes a broad collection of arbitration court cases and arbitration awards to analyze, followed by discussion questions, case problems, and summaries. Court cases and arbitration awards were selected which set forth clear and practical substantive and procedural arbitration principles. In addition, leading Supreme Court cases, which outline and identify federal common law rules and policies on arbitration, are included to illustrate the judicial process for establishing precedent and federal common arbitration laws. Similarly, a selected number of secondary readings, which should enhance the reader's understanding and application of specific arbitration concepts, are inserted to give the reader an immediate opportunity to synthesize a wealth of arbitration concepts and principles. The book is divided between labor and employment arbitration with a major emphasis on labor arbitration. The labor arbitration section provides a wide range of reoccurring labor issues such as, management rights, seniority, subcontracting, benefits, wages and hours, off duty conduct, and safety policies. Because disciplinary actions remain the dominant issue arbitrated, a significant amount of material is included on the "just cause" principles. Through arbitration awards, each element of the "just cause" principle is explained and analyzed. Aside from disciplinary issues, the book also covers issue grievances, which primarily involve contract interpretation. The last section of the book discusses the development of employment arbitration. This area of arbitration has rapidly expanded in the private sector. The catalyst for this expansion was caused in part by The Supreme Court's liberal interpretation of the Federal Arbitration Act and most recently, the validation of mandatory arbitration provisions in employment contracts. This section of the book includes the leading Supreme Court decisions on compulsory arbitration and the application of these cases on discrimination claims, employment statutes, and contract disputes. Floyd D. Weatherspoon is a Professor at Capital University Law School (Columbus, Ohio), where he has taught labor and employment related courses, including arbitration for more than twenty-five years. Professor Weatherspoon also serves as a neutral in complex commercial, labor, and employment disputes. He is nationally recognized as a highly experienced labor and employment arbitrator. He serves on a number of state and national arbitration rosters and panels, including the American Arbitration Association's Labor and Employment Panels, the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service's Roster and the National Mediation Board's Arbitration Panel. In addition to serving as a labor and employment arbitrator, he has also served as a fact-finder in a number of labor contract disputes. Professor Weatherspoon is a member of the National Academy of Arbitrators, and serves on the Council of the American Arbitration Association.

China s Foreign Investment Legal Regime Book Excerpt:

China has developed a piecemeal pattern of regulating foreign investment since the end of 1970s. The latest law is the Foreign Investment Law (FIL), which became effective on 1 January 2020. The groundbreaking new FIL is well acknowledged for its promises and affirmations pledged to investors, signalling China’s eagerness to improve its investment environment and regain momentum for investment growth. This book provides an updated and holistic understanding of the key features of the regulatory regime on foreign investment in China with critical analysis of laws and their implementation. It also examines sensitive and complex legal issues relevant to foreign investment beyond the 2020 FIL and new developments on foreign-related dispute settlement. The book uses cases of success and failure to illustrate the nuances and differences between law and practice regarding foreign investment. Considering China’s magnitude in the global economy and the weighty role of the regulatory system on foreign investment in China, this book is of great interest to a wide range of audience including academics in the field of investment law, legal practitioners, policymakers, and master's students in law and in management.

Commercial Arbitration in Germany Book Excerpt:

This is a much-needed reference work providing practitioners and academics with a detailed commentary on and thorough analysis of German arbitration law and practice. This title covers both domestic and international arbitration in all its stages. The work details the legal framework for German-related arbitration and provides practical guidance on the appropriate choices, with a specific focus on particularities of German law and practice. It contains a high level of analysis whilst maintaining a practical approach and structure mirroring the typical course of arbitral proceedings. The book navigates along the life cycle of an arbitration, commencing with the arbitration agreement, continuing with the arbitral tribunal, the arbitral proceedings and interim relief, and concluding with the arbitral award including its recognition and enforcement. At each stage, the work combines exhaustive legal analysis, clear and concise presentation, and a practical and accessible approach. Written by highly regarded experts in the field, it provides arbitration practitioners and academics alike with a thorough guide for use when working on cases with a German nexus with a detailed analysis of the applicable legal framework in Germany. Arbitration in Germany continues to grow as the country builds on its reputation as a suitable venue for international arbitration. This trend is reflected in the increasing relevance of the German Institution of Arbitration (DIS), which currently has more than 1,150 members domestically and overseas, including numerous major trade organizations and chambers of commerce, leading German companies, judges, lawyers and academics. The number of arbitration cases under the DIS Rules has more than doubled since 2005 while statistics of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) show that Germany is the fifth most frequently chosen place of arbitration and German law is the fourth most frequently chosen law. Even where the place of arbitration is outside Germany, German arbitration law plays an increasingly important role for the recognition and enforcement of awards. This particular significance is highlighted by Germany's strong export-oriented economy and is mirrored in the fact that German parties are the second most frequently encountered nationality among parties in ICC arbitrations worldwide.
