Leveraging Unique Procedures in International Arbitration to Protect Against a Breaching Counterparty


In the first session of the Knowledge & Social series, speakers Anisha Sud and Joel Ng will share strategies and provide practical advice on how international arbitration, as a dispute resolution mechanism, can be a powerful tool for companies involved in international disputes to retain control in situations where a counterparty breaches, or threatens to breaches, its contractual obligations. 

Our speakers will focus on five often-overlooked procedures and safeguards that international arbitration uniquely offers, including (1) emergency arbitration, (2) interim measures, (3) interrogatories, (4) early (pre-pleading discovery), and (5) security for costs and claims, all of which can be leveraged in a dispute to ensure that a breaching counterparty continues to perform its obligations pending the resolution of the dispute, or to otherwise best-position the company for success.  The speakers will also describe some of the reasons why international arbitration is increasingly chosen as a dispute resolution mechanism by parties, including the ease of enforceability of arbitral awards, confidentiality of proceedings, ability to select tribunal members, and ability to bifurcate issues.

Join us on the last Thursday of each month for the latest legal insights and a curated cocktail of the month. We hope to see you there!
