"Up-date and recent Trends on “Damages” in International Arbitration" conference in Vienna

11 Sep 2019

CIArb is pleased to support as an official institutional partner the "Up-date and recent Trends on “Damages” in International Arbitration" conference taking place in Vienna on 17 October 2019. This event, organised by ICC Austria, is addressed to general counsel, attorneys, arbitrators and experts.

"Damages” - have arguably become one of the most important and complex issues in international arbitration, and for good reason, because for a claimant at least, the damages are the arbitration’s very raison d’être.” 

Prof. Loukas Mistelis, Queen Mary College University of London 

“Damages” are the principal remedy in international business, in particular, with respect to complex long-term contracts such as turnkey construction projects, public-private partnerships, concessions, oil & gas projects, and also as regards less complex contractual relationships such as international sales contracts where specific performance is often not available under the applicable law, or simply not practical. In investment, arbitration damages are the principal remedy. The objective of this conference is to provide an update on hot topics and tendencies in damages in commercial and investment arbitration. 

The event speakers will be Mag. Dr. Lic. Herfried Wöss, LL.M. (Exeter) and Lic. Adriana San Román, M.A. Finance & Investment (Exeter), with Dr Michael Nueber as moderator 

Further details regarding the event and registration form are available in the flyer.
