What People are saying about this

Luis M. Martinez
"The format is easy to follow and the editors have managed to put together a thorough and concise publication that will provide the novice or expert alike with the latest information and the answers to many of the complex questions and issues that are raised in international commercial arbitration today. I highly recommend International Arbitration Checklists."--(Luis M. Martinez, Esq. Vice President, International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) of the American Arbitration Assocation (AAA))
Louis Epstein
"International Arbitration Checklists is a very useful desktop reference. The authors, international practitioners and arbitrators, have carefully considered each stage of the arbitration process -- from the moment the dispute arises to the enforcement of the award -- and have identified the questions that commonly arise. The thoughtful discussions that follow the checklists reflect the extensive experience of the authors, and deal not only with legal and procedural questions but also with the matters of ethics, language and culture that are often encountered in international proceedings. The appendix helpfully reproduces in one place the texts of the New York Convention, a list of contracting states, and the most frequently used ad hoc and institutional rules."--(Louis Epstein, Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, Transammonia, Inc., New York)
Gregory P. Joseph
"International Arbitration Checklists is a gem. It deconstructs every major aspect of international arbitration, meticulously analyzing the key issues in a compact, user-friendly form."--(Gregory P. Joseph is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and former Chair of the 60,000-member Section of Litigation of the American Bar Association. He formerly chaired the Litigation Department at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson in New York)
