In particular, international arbitration allows the parties to a contract to agree in advance how matters will be addressed in the event of an unresolved dispute:
- the choice of arbitral organisation
- the place of arbitration
- the functional language
- the number and selection of arbitrators
- the prevailing law and procedures to be followed.
We often hear that an international arbitration is substantially the same as litigation before the UK Courts. At Dains Forensic, we disagree with such an assessment and find that an international arbitration can be very different to the High Court with a need to adapt to the different cultures and business practices.
We have experience of providing expert evidence before the ICC, LCIA, DCIA and SCC, involving parties from the UK, Austria, Finland, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Turkey, UAE, USA and West Africa.
