Management of Arbitration

Using arbitration to resolve international commercial and investment disputes is based on the notion that arbitrations are more cost effective and efficient in resolving disputes.   ICC international arbitration offers a unique case management process -including case management conference and terms of reference, allowing the arbitration parties to plan, assess and prepare for various stages in an arbitration proceeding in order to properly manage/control the time and cost in the arbitration proceeding to resolve disputes as efficiently as possible.

In this session, counsel of the International Court of Arbitration’s Secretariat and Case Management Office will speak on the features of the case management process of ICC arbitration.   The ICC Court members, counsel, in-house counsel, chief financial officers, law practitioners and independent arbitrators will engage in discussions regarding case management techniques and relevant strategic considerations and share their experience and provide their comments.
