“We invite all legal representatives, in-house counsel and arbitral tribunal members

to contribute to this major survey into costs in international arbitration. The survey

This is essential if international arbitration is to maintain its position

as the commercial dispute resolution method of choice."

 “To make the survey effective, we need corporate counsel, party representatives, arbitrators and tribunal members to give us as much data as possible on arbitrations in which they have been involved.”
