Practice Area Definition

International Arbitration Definition

International Arbitration is a principal method of resolving cross-border disputes. Due to the steady proliferation of global trade and foreign investment, and their desire to avoid specific legal systems, more and more disputants opt for the conclusion of arbitration agreements. Arbitration proceedings are contractual by nature and may involve states, individuals and corporations on the basis of a wide range of commercial agreements. international cases.

Professor De Vries distilled the essence of arbitration as “a mode of resolving disputes by one or more persons who derive their power from the agreement of the parties and whose decision is binding upon them”.

By choosing to arbitrate, disputants exclude recourse to state courts and avail themselves of a private and neutral dispute resolution mechanism. Their preferred choice is driven by the finality and worldwide enforceability of awards on the basis of the New York Convention with currently 156 contracting states. Disputants retain a high degree of control over the process and select arbitrators based on desirable qualifications to decide their dispute in accordance with the agreed framework (ad-hoc or institutional arbitration) and applicable procedural and substantive law. Other prevalent features include the adaptability of the process, time and cost efficiency and the principle of confidentiality.

This dynamic field of law is marked by flexibility and party autonomy. In ad hoc arbitration, parties may establish their own rules of procedure. In arbitral practice, parties are however often cognisant of the added benefits offered by the administrative support of a host of specialist institutions such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the German Institution of Arbitration (DIS) under their own established rules of arbitration.

The tasks faced by counsel in international arbitrations encompass a large spread of legal matters. They may range from pre-trial evaluation to the development of conflict resolution strategies and enforcing their clients’ interest. This highly specialized practice area requires vast experience in litigation and arbitration as well as familiarity with alternative dispute resolution tools (e.g. conciliation, mediation, expert determination, dispute boards). Services provided by counsel may include supporting their clients with respect to the recognition and enforcement of awards before state courts.

Arbitration practitioners will likely find themselves working in many different jurisdictions and with many different laws. They utilize their unique skill set to bridge cultural gaps and are well versed in industry specific trade customs and procedures. Apart from representing individual and corporate clients before arbitral tribunals, they frequently also sit as arbitrators in domestic or international cases.
