Party-promulgated document requests – how to draft effective requests


In international arbitration each party is responsible for submitting the documentary evidence on which it intends to rely to support its case and there is no automatic right to the production of documentary evidence in the possession or control of the opposing party. This session will explore the limits of document production in international arbitration and provide practical insights on how to frame an effective request resulting in an expeditious and cost effective document production procedure.
