The Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce¿commonly referred to as the ICC Rules¿are the rules most frequently used in commercial disputes between business partners from different countries. Since they were first launched in 1922, these Rules have been applied in over 13,000 cases.
This eminently practical volume provides an article-by-article commentary of the current version of the ICC Rules of Arbitration. Using clear and concise language, unencumbered by footnotes and illustrated by flow diagrams, the authors guide the reader through the various stages of ICC arbitration proceedings, from initiation to the final award. This thorough analysis is enhanced with other invaluable material, including
a digest of statistics relating to ICC arbitration for the years 1999 to 2003;
a comparative table of references to selected national arbitration laws;
a bibliography, including useful web sites; and
a chapter on ICC¿s other dispute resolution services.
Appendices provide the reader with the texts of ICC¿s various dispute resolution rules and other relevant documents.
The authors, all practising lawyers, have all worked as counsel at the Secretariat of the ICC International Court of Arbitration. They have gone on to represent parties and act as arbitrators in many international proceedings.
Written from a practical perspective, this book is an essential resource for company lawyers who wish to familiarize themselves with ICC arbitration, assess the pros and cons of entering into an arbitration clause referring to the ICC rules, or obtain information and guidance on how to proceed in a given situation.
