On Friday 6th June 2014, the Secretariat of the ICC Court of International Arbitration launched its guide for the effective management of arbitration for in-house counsel and other party representatives.
The “Effective Management of Arbitration: A guide for In-House Counsel and Other Party Representative” booklet provides the parties and its representatives with a checklist for the procedural decisions that need to be made at each principal phase of an arbitration. It is a practical tool kit for making effective time and cost decisions based upon a cost-benefit analysis. Therefore, it addresses the modern need for a rational and holistic approach to the management of disputes: it draws a roadmap through the dispute, from its pre-arbitration stage to the arbitration itself.
The guide was written by an ICC task force composed of corporate counsel, a private practitioner, an arbitrator, and representatives of the ICC Court of International Arbitration Secretariat.
The launching event for this guide took place at the ICC Headquarters in Paris. During the event, a round table discussion took place, where corporate counsel expressed their views on each step of the arbitral process described in the guide. The CCIAG was well-represented, with Isabelle Hautot, Pierre-Jérôme Abric, Marie Vicien-Milburn and Jean-Claude Najar among the speakers.
