Welcome address, introduction and presentation of the training 


Session 1: Strategic Deployment of Documentary Evidence 


In international arbitration, there is no one-size-fits-all to the treatment of evidence. This session will explore the nuances of a Tribunal’s approach to the evaluation of evidence generally and how parties can deploy documentary evidence strategically with other types of evidence to put their best case forward 





Coffee break 


Session 2: Maximizing the quality and efficiency of document production 


The scope of a document production process affects the duration and efficiency of the proceedings as well as costs for parties. This session will discuss the tools the Tribunal has in its kit to robustly case manage to streamline the document production process as well as the steps parties can take to ensure that the documentary evidence produced is germane to the key issues at hand. It will also suggest more efficient strategies for the parties to deal with this phase.  


Case scenarios 


Lunch Break 


Session 3: Documentary evidence and key issues of M&A disputes 


Arbitration has increasingly become the preferred method of dispute resolution for a wide range of high-value mergers and acquisition where the core issue centers on whether the commercial bargain struck was effectively embodied in the written agreements.  This session explores the many facets of this core issue and how documentary evidence helps in the interpretation of key terms, including representations and warranties in the written documents. 



Case scenarios 


Coffee break 


Session 4: Documentary evidence and key issues of Construction and Infrastructure disputes 


Large scale construction and infrastructure arbitrations are notorious for involving document intensive exercises which are expensive and time-consuming. This session will analyse how to deal with voluminous documents generated during day-to-day operations conflicting with terms in contractual agreements.  In addition, it will address what parties can do to shore up all relevant and critical documentary evidence while managing costs.
