European and international arbitration 101 - What US counsel need to know

03 February 2015

The use of arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism continues to grow and arbitration is increasingly supported by the laws and courts of jurisdictions which specialise in international commercial disputes.

During this webinar we examine the features of international arbitration conducted in Europe (UK, in particular) and internationally outside of the US, focusing in particular on those features which might differ from US domestic arbitration, or which might surprise US based parties.

The webinar is presented by two members of our European Commercial Disputes practice group: Antony Woodhouse, a partner specialising in international arbitration, particularly in disputes with an insurance angle, and Tom Price, a director specialising in general commercial international arbitration.

Amongst other things the webinar explores:

  • The role of the arbitrator
  • Choice of law and jurisdiction issues - getting your arbitration clause right
  • Court support for arbitration and available remedies
  • Enforcement
