Arbitration World highlights the significant developments and issues in international arbitration that matter to in-house counsel and company executives with responsibility for dispute resolution.
Welcome to the Fourth Edition of “Arbitration World,” a publication from K&L Gates’ Arbitration Group which aims to highlight significant developments and issues in international arbitration that matter to executives and in-house counsel with responsibility for dispute resolution.
In this edition we look back at the firm’s third annual London International Arbitration Seminar at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge in April and look forward to hosting a similar event in San Francisco on 4-5 October 2007 (details in the Forthcoming Events section on the back page).
We are pleased to include a guest contribution from Petter Tornquist of Setterwalls, the leading Swedish law firm, on the new rules of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce.
We look at the reasons behind the growth in arbitration in sport, by reference to some recent examples in the U.S.
We review the recently revised code for NASD Securities Arbitrations and
developments in resolution of domain name disputes in Asia.
Getting dispute resolution clauses right is always important. We look at why this is particularly the case for directors and officers’ liability insurance.
We report on a recent case which may sound the death knell for the English Court’s practice of granting anti-suit injunctions where proceedings have been commenced in breach of an arbitration clause in another E.U. Member State.
We also include our usual round-up of recent developments in international arbitration from around the world.
