This panel discussion among leading arbitrators, practitioners, and managers will examine expedited arbitration rules from a number of different arbitration regimes including UNCITRAL, ICDR and others. Beyond a recitation of rules, the panel will focus on real-world issues and outcomes based on hands-on experience.
Discussion will include:
What constitutes 'expedited' under leading arbitral rules
Expedited caseload data and statistics
Benefits and challenges of expedited procedures from the view of the arbitrator, party and administrator
When can parties decide to utilize expedited procedures and when can arbitrators decide against the use of expedited procedures?
Who are expedited arbitrators - the expedited caseload as an opportunity to diversify and grow?
'Real life' examples of the efficacy and lack thereof of expedited procedures
