a| International Arbitration and the COVID-19 Revolution is a timely book that elucidates and analyses how the COVID-19 crisis has redefined arbitral practice, with a critical appraisal of the pandemic’s effects from well-known practitioners on substantive and procedural aspects from the commencement of proceedings until the enforcement of the award. The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply impacted all major economic sectors and industries and elicited profound and systemic changes in international arbitration. Moreover, the fact that entire proceedings are now being conducted remotely constitutes so significant a deviation from the norm as to warrant the designation ‘revolution’.
a| With practical guidance from legal, practical and sector-specific perspectives on the conduct of international arbitration during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, the chapters shed light on the insights of leading practitioners into the unprecedented and multifaceted issues that arise. They provide expert tips and challenges in such practical matters as the following: • preventing and resolving disputes of particular types – construction, energy, aviation, technology, media and telecommunication, finance and insurance; • arbitrator appointments; • issues of planning, preparation and sample procedural orders; • witness preparation and cross-examination; • e-signature of arbitral awards; • setting aside and enforcement proceedings; and • third-party funding. An empirical survey of users’ views and an overview of how the COVID-19 revolution has affected the arbitration rules of leading arbitral seats have also been incorporated in the book.
