Reimagining Supply Chain Agreements and Dispute Resolution Practices to Better Manage Uncertainty

The Russia-Ukraine conflict, Suez Canal blockage, record inflation, and raw material shortages, in addition to the COVID-19 pandemic, have exposed the vulnerabilities of supply chains in many industries. Panelists will address how business practices, contracts, arbitration clauses, and approaches to dispute prevention and resolution have changed over the last two years to better weather the destabilising effects of current and future crises.

The panel will offer practical tips to minimise business risks, disruptions, and disputes while also discussing best practices to manage proceedings involving supply-chain disputes.

What Needs to Change in Procedural Orders & Timetables?

All too often, procedural orders and procedural timetables are copied and pasted from arbitration to arbitration instead of being tailored to the needs of the current proceedings. This interactive presentation will examine how procedural orders and procedural timetables, particularly Procedural Order No.1, should be remodelled to, for example, avoid procedural redundancy, incorporate offramps to settlement and employ other ADR tools. Panellists will put forth innovative ideas and practical steps to shift the paradigm on how procedural orders and procedural timetables are to be structured, and how arbitrations unfold. The audience will be invited to engage in a dialogue with the panellists and vote on their proposals.

Dispute Boards (DBs) are used in various projects that involve continued interactions—and opportunities for disputes—between parties. A DB is an independent committee established by the parties to help avoid and overcome any disagreements or disputes that may arise during the execution of a contract. Although often established for complex engineering and construction projects, DBs are an important, yet frequently overlooked, dispute prevention tool that can keep projects moving forward in many other industries.

Using interactive exercises, our one-day intensive DB training equips participants with the skills and expertise they need to:

  1. Explain the business case for DBs to clients in various industries.
  2. Advise or represent clients establishing a DB.
  3. Be an effective dispute board member.
  4. Understand the ICC Dispute Board Rules and the role of the ICC International Centre for ADR.

The training will start with an introductory overview of the origins of the DB process. It will also address topics such as decision writing and challenges of organising virtual site visits and hearings.
