CIArb Costs of International Arbitration Survey. Participate and obtain the results of the Survey!

The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators commenced collection of information on the costs of international commercial arbitration proceedings. The aim is to gather data which will inform parties, legal representatives, and arbitrators about the overall costs of international commercial arbitration. The survey is also gathering data about how those costs are made up, the allocation of costs by arbitrators and the extent to which these may depend upon the nature of the dispute, the seat of arbitration, the amount in dispute, the composition of the arbitral tribunal and the costs incurred prior to, and during, the arbitration.

 The findings will be analyzed and disseminated through a report and a conference, organized by CIArb, which will take place on 27 – 28 September 2011 in London, England.

Summary Proceedings in International Arbitration

The separation of the state courts’ and of the arbitrators’ respective spheres of competence, which is uncontroversial with respect to the merits of a dispute, is much more problematic in relation to summary proceedings, i.e. proceedings aimed at obtaining a rapid decision on one or more aspects of dispute. Whether, and to what extent, arbitral tribunals and state courts have jurisdiction to hear applications for summary judgments in the presence of an arbitration agreement on merits of the dispute, is one of the major problems of international arbitration, and the solutions adopted differ significantly from one jurisdiction to another.
