International arbitration report

Global Publication September 2019

Welcome to issue 13 of Norton Rose Fulbright’s International Arbitration Report.

In this issue, we look at the use of arbitration to resolve M&A disputes. We interview Helena Tavares Erickson, Senior Vice-President, Dispute Resolution Services & Corporate Secretary, at CPR: International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution.

Continuing our series on Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS), we provide an analysis of the proposed reforms to ISDS regimes around the globe. We also add to our other series; offering an update on mediation developments including the Singapore Mediation Convention; and look at legislative developments and market trends in third party funding.

We analyze the important practice topic of data protection and cyber risk in arbitration, and consider how issues of good faith changed circumstances and hardship arise and can be dealt with in arbitration.

Our case law updates discuss recent jurisprudence on challenging and enforcing awards from Singapore, Hong Kong, England and Wales. We look in detail at developments in arbitration across Africa. And, as always, our global round up summarizes “need to know” developments in arbitration law, practice and trends in other jurisdictions across the globe.
