We are delighted to announce the publication of Fox Williams Partner Peter Ashford’s second book on the main IBA publications, ‘The IBA Guidelines on Party Representation in International Arbitration – A Guide’.
The guidelines on party representation are one of three key publications published by the IBA and are commonly referred to or adopted as good practice in international arbitration worldwide. This user-friendly handbook to the guidelines will improve the understanding and practical application of arbitration protocol in the international legal community.
Written by a respected and experienced arbitration practitioner, this is a companion volume to The IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration and combines commentary from the drafting committee, additional analysis of the guidelines and tabular comparative material addressing the interaction with Major Professional Conduct Rules and Major Institutional Rules. It is a convenient and invaluable resource for best practice on the duties of arbitrators, institutions and other representatives in this field.
Peter comments “International arbitration is as popular as ever. The Guidelines endorse the adequacy of existing regulations and the notion that parties and tribunals should craft a process that meets the parties’ objectives of time and cost so that it becomes a pragmatic and cost-efficient process”.
