The countries of Latin America have distinct cultures, histories, economies and thus have different legal systems and approaches to international arbitration. The draw of foreign investment and interplay with stakeholders from the US, Europe and Asia have led to a dramatic increase in the use of commercial arbitration in this region. There has also been dramatic growth in the number of arbitrators and local arbitral institutions, even as distrust persists over the way arbitrations are handled. Brazil alone reportedly now attracts as many parties as France and Germany and today occupies fourth place in the ranking of most represented nationalities. Arbitration Law and Practice in Latin America provides unparalleled guidance on this complex and diverse area. Twenty-one experts in the field provide detailed commentary on the history and infrastructure of arbitration for their jurisdiction, as well as an analysis of the current law and practice covering key issues in arbitration. Together with their discussion of significant cases and an appendix of the relevant national legislation the reports are authoritative, but accessible, up-to-date and comprehensive. It is a must for practitioners and scholars alike and every party wishing to gain a solid footing in Latin American arbitration.--Publisher's website.
