By Thomas E. Birsic, Ian Meredith, Linda A. Kent, Peter R. Morton, Kelly D. Talcott, Matthew E. Smith and Clare Tanner.

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 first edition of “Arbitration World,” a publication from Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham LLP’s Arbitration Group.  “Arbitration World” aims to highlight significant developments and issues in international arbitration that matter to in-house counsel and company executives with responsibility for dispute resolution.

In this issue we will be covering some recent decisions of the European Court of Justice which serve to highlight the benefits of agreements to arbitrate, and some English case law developments including a House of Lords decision re-affirming the English court’s noninterventionist approach to arbitration.

We look at the growing importance of Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) and how they might be used not only in claims by investors against governments of developing nations, but also in claims against Western States.
