Have you ever been frustrated that arbitration folk aren’t more literate – or rather numerate - in damages?
GAR has published a book for anyone who has.
Published this month, Global Arbitration Review’s The Guide to Damages in International Arbitration is a desktop reference work for those who’d like greater confidence when dealing with the numbers.
Over 386 pages, and 26 chapters, it covers all aspects of damages – from the legal principles applicable, to the main valuation techniques and their mechanics, to industry-specific questions, and topics such as tax and currency.
It is pitched at the entry level, keeping things simple and easy to follow. For example, for each of the major methodologies employed by damages experts the book describes the basics of the approach, the areas of general agreement, and the points at which consensus can break down. GAR and the editor hope that by providing some detail, but not too much, the book will act as a compass for non-accountants and non-economists that enables them to argue or umpire the damages part of cases more effectively.
"The Global Arbitration Review Guide to Damages in International Arbitration covers most issues likely to be faced by arbitrators, counsel and experts. The twenty-six chapters are written by experts in their respective fields. Their advice is down to earth and practical. The Guide fulfills the aim described by John Trenor in his Introduction: “ to make the subject of damages in international arbitration more understandable and less intimidating for arbitrators and other participants in the field and to help participants present these issues more effectively to tribunals.”

Are you interested in what well-known arbitrators like or dislike when it comes to advocacy? Would you like to help junior colleagues develop their advocacy skills? Are you a civil-trained lawyer who’d like to feel more at ease with cross-examination?
Published in November 2016 The Guide to Advocacy is a new, practical book for specialists and would-be specialists on how to be persuasive during international arbitration. It breaks the arbitral process into key steps and explains the advocacy “opportunity” that each represents (focusing on the principles at work rather than specifics).
Woven throughout are gems from big name arbitrators – tips, complaints, musings and reminiscences – providing a new, 360-degree view of written and oral submissions.
With limited substantive players in the Energy industry, long term partnerships, uncertainty and political instability brought about by nationalisations in North Africa, the Gulf States and parts of Latin America, the energy sector is a hot bed of international disputes. However, with the lesson learned in 'foreign courts' there is scarcely a major energy sector contract that does not call for disputes to be resolved before an independent and neutral arbitral tribunal.
Global Arbitration Review's Guide to Energy Arbitrations is an essential desk-top reference tool for energy companies, their advisers and arbitrators, that brings together a number of pre-eminent authors and pulls together the latest and best approaches to the myriad issues confronted in today's energy disputes.
The GAR Guide to Construction Arbitration takes the reader through the essential detail of preparing, mitigating and managing construction disputes internationally. From preparing contracts and guarantees, to setting up dispute boards, organizing proceedings in arbitrations, analyzing documents and evidence, and navigating within particular industries and regions.
