International arbitration has become the preferred dispute resolution mechanism in cross-border disputes. In the course of time, ad hoc arbitration, where the parties have to create their own rules and procedures, has increasingly been replaced by institutional arbitration where a specialised institution with a permanent organisation provides assistance and a set of practice-proven rules. The services and rules provided by the various institutions of arbitration differ. In order to inform the potential parties and their counsels about the differences and to make the choice between the different arbitration regimes easier, and to offer guidance through the various provisions, this book provides a comprehensive article-by-article commentary of rules of arbitration of 14 important arbitration institutions: AAA (American Arbitration Association) CIEDAC (China International Economic and Trade Arbitration) DIAC (Dubai International Arbitration Centre) DIS (German Institution of Arbitration) ICC (International Court of Arbitration) ICSID (International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes) KLRCA (Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration) LCIA (The London Court of International Arbitration) MKAS (Moscow International Commercial Arbitration Court) SCC (Stockholm Chamber of Commerce Arbitration) SIAC (Singapore International Arbitration Centre) Swiss Rules UNCITRAL Rules Vienna Rules

Assembled from Dispute Resolution Journal - the flagship publication of the American Arbitration Association - the chapters in the Handbook have all, where necessary, been revised and updated prior to publication. The book is succinct, comprehensive and a practical introduction to the use of arbitration and ADR, written by leading practitioners and scholars. The Handbook has discussions of such topics as confidentiality in arbitration, tips for beginning practitioners, cultural issues in arbitration, and the contrast of civil and common law approaches. International forum selection is discussed, including whether national or regional centers are viable options, and how to save time and money in cross-border disputes. A range of other issues are discussed, such as interim and emergency relief, the use of a preliminary hearing letter, time-management techniques, and discovery and evidence. Ethical concerns are also discussed, including a comparison of arbitrator standards of conduct in international trade and investment disputes, dealing with arbitrator conflicts, and arbitrator disclosure standards. Finally, the work addresses the topics of damages and the review and enforcement of international arbitration awards, including interpretations under the New York Convention. The chapters were selected from an extensive body of writings and, in the main, represent world-class assessments of arbitration and ADR practice. All the major facets of the field are addressed and provide the reader with comprehensive and accurate information, lucid evaluations, and an indication of future developments. They not only acquaint, but also ground the reader in the field.

Well-known since its first edition for its lucid explanation of the important concepts affecting international commercial agreements in terms that a lawyer or business executive new to the field can understand and use - rather than the legal jargon of experts talking to other experts - this incomparable one-volume work provides basic, precise information on setting up and performing international trade transactions. Its focus reflects the reality of the day-to-day business of international trade, which is primarily an undertaking between two private businesses based on a contract drafted and negotiated between the two parties for performance by them with occasional third-party assistance. Reinforcing the book's concentration on the private dimensions of international trade, and more precisely on the contractual aspects of that trade, the Fourth Edition extends its coverage to the newest growing dimensions of the field, with new chapters on intellectual property, international electronic commerce, and online dispute resolution. the much-appreciated solid basic information on a wide variety of issues that people will encounter in putting together international commercial agreements is of course still here, and includes the following: ; specific guidance on drafting commercial agreements; background material on contract formation, including basic information on contract law; differences between international and domestic contracts; in-depth exploration of negotiation techniques to help smooth the negotiation process; detailed discussion of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation/conciliation as well as arbitration; drafting contracts to cover a wide variety of business relationships, such as sale of services, franchises, joint ventures, and licenses; regional differences; online dispute resolution; and emerging new trends in international commercial arrangements. The reader will find a substantial amount of information and discussion on international electronic commerce both in separate chapters and within chapters on more general topics. In its recognition that a business executive entering into an international commercial transaction is mainly interested in drafting an agreement that satisfies all of the parties and that will be performed as promised, this superb functional guide for negotiation, drafting and resolving disputes in international commercial agreements will immeasurably assist any lawyer or business executive to plan and carry out individual transactions even when that person is not interested in a full-blown understanding of the entire landscape of international contracts. Business executives who are not lawyers will find that the book gives them the understanding and perspective necessary to work effectively with the legal experts.
