October 2011 – James Hosking was a panelist at the Practicing Law Institute’s 2011 “Commercial Arbitration” seminar held on October 12. The theme of the seminar was strategies for increased efficiency and cost-effectivenes in commercial arbitration. James’ panel addressed recent developments in international arbitration, including the revised ICC Arbitration Rules that will come into force in 2012. James focused on emergency measures of protection available before an international arbitration tribunal is constituted. His review of the procedural mechanisms employed by various arbitral institutions—including the ICC, ICDR, ICSID, LCIA, SCC, SIAC, and NAI—highlighted the wave of revisions in institutional rules to accommodate requests for pre-arbitral relief.
