SCC at ITA workshop on Emergency Arbitrators and Interim measures
International arbitration experts from around the world will meet in Dallas 15-17 June for a workshop on the topic: “When Justice Delayed Would Be Justice Denied: Emergency Arbitrators and Interim Measures in International Arbitration”.
At the event, SCC Secretary General Annette Magnusson will share practical experience with emergency arbitrator proceedings, and applications for interim relief to arbitral tribunals at the SCC, as well as perspectives on emerging trends.
The Emergency Arbitrator at the SCC is a useful tool for parties seeking an urgent relief before the case has been referred to the Arbitral Tribunal, and even up until 30 days before the request for arbitration has been filed. The provisions for the appointment of an Emergency Arbitrator was introduced when the current SCC Arbitration Rules entered into force on Jan 1, 2010.
The workshop also includes mock hearings, discussions on enforcement of interim measures, risk assessment, ethics as well as an open discussion with Albert Jan van den Berg, past President, International Council Commercial Arbitrators (ICCA), and Meg Kinnear, Secretary-General, International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).
The Dallas workshop is organized by the Institute for Transnational Arbitration (ITA).
