International arbitration report | Norton Rose Fulbright

Estadística2018 | Mayo 11
With 2018 being the 60th anniversary of the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards 1958 (New York Convention), the theme for this issue is enforcement. Lawyers from across our global firm review various trends and developments in this area, including current approaches to enforcing awards that have been set aside at the seat and the use of the public policy exception as a bar  to enforcement. We provide a practical guide to bringing enforcement proceedings, and offer strategic tips for in‑house counsel on how to best position themselves from the outset in order to secure payment of their claim at the end of the day.

Brics dispute resolution mechanism: Challenges ahead, but promises much

BRICS2016 | Octubre 25
The idea behind a Brics-centric dispute resolution mechanism stems from challenges faced frequently by developing countries in existing international arbitration frameworks.

This often leads to adverse economic ramifications of arbitral awards for these countries.
