March 2015 – Chaffetz Lindsey partner Aníbal Sabater recently spoke at a seminar titled “ICDR Awards and Commentaries: Just How Different Is International Arbitration Than Domestic Arbitration?” which was sponsored by The American Arbitration Association.
In 1996, the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) – the international arm of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) – was given responsibility for the AAA’s international services and the AAA’s international rules were revised and rebranded as the ICDR. In 2003, the ICDR Rules were amended to provide for publication of redacted arbitration awards. It is now widely accepted that publication of arbitration awards, even in redacted form, contributes importantly to the development and standardization of international arbitration law, particularly regarding procedural matters.
During this webinar that took place on March 18th, Aníbal, Grant Hanessian (of Baker & McKenzie LLP), and Luis Martinez (Vice President of the International Centre for Dispute Resolution®), all distinguished international arbitration experts, discussed:
- published ICDR awards and the lessons they provide for counsel and parties;
- differences between international arbitration and domestic arbitration;
- recent ICDR Rules changes; and
- the perspectives of international arbitrators on the conduct of an international arbitration.
