Launch of ICC’s Report on Emergency Arbitrator Proceedings

23 Sep 2019

Seoul English

This launch will present the Report of the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR released earlier this year, providing guidance to users, counsel and arbitrators of emergency arbitrator proceedings.

This ICC Report studies the experience with emergency arbitration (“EA”) proceedings and analyses all aspects, including procedural and substantive issues that may arise in EA proceedings in order to identify and examine any emerging trends and to facilitate the use of EA proceedings through increased transparency and predictability.

The Report is based on an empirical study of the first eighty ICC EA applications and benefited from experiences provided by other arbitral institutions with similar EA mechanisms.

Up to 70 participants, including practicing lawyers, corporate counsels, arbitrators and academics are expected to participate in this event.
