Within this work, the reader will find a simplified and updated explanation of international commercial arbitration from alpha to omega. Given the explosive growth of arbitration as an effective means to resolve cross-border business disputes, we have seen an impressive advancement of scholarly work concerning the field in recent years. This book is intended to appeal to lawyers in private practice, as well as to students and newcomers to international arbitration. It is also aimed at another, often overlooked audience, the actual users of the arbitral process. We have written each chapter considering the perspective of in-house counsel, and businesspeople in general, who find themselves navigating legal disputes with international counterparties. In-house counsel engaged in a cross-border dispute tend to focus on different issues compared to lawyers in private practice. Thus, we frame the discussion as an informal dialogue for dealing with an international business matter and not as a doctrinal debate about abstract legal or academic principles. Each chapter covers a different subject and progresses forward chronologically, from the pre-dispute contracting phase through the post-award enforcement and remedies phase. At every step, we consider the strategic objectives of a corporate entity immersed in the process. Our goal is to provide counsel with tools to grasp the nuance of the arbitral process and craft the most effective strategy for the relevant business.--Publisher.
