코로나19 사태와 ICC 중재

 COVID-19 is disrupting both pending and new ICC arbitration cases. However, parties, counsel and tribunals can work together to minimize and even avoid such disruption and difficulty by thoughtful use of case management tools provided by the ICC Arbitration Rules and additional steps the ICC Court is taking to streamline internal processes.

The ICC Guidance Note on Possible Measures Aimed at Mitigating the Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic (the “Guidance Note”) recalls such tools and measures, and also provides guidance on the virtual hearing that is becoming the “new normal”. In this webinar, the Korean translation of the Guidance Note will be introduced by a panel of experts who will discuss the contents of the Guidance Note as well as their experience regarding its takeaways.
