Across 15 chapters, and 88 pages, the European Arbitration Review 2020 provides an invaluable retrospective from 31 authors. Together, our contributors capture and interpret the most substantial recent international arbitration events of the year just gone, supported by footnotes and relevant statistics. Other articles provide a backgrounder – to get you up to speed, quickly, on the essentials of a particular seat.
This edition covers Austria, England and Wales, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and Ukraine. Among the nuggets it contains:
• news of a rule change in the UK that makes it easier to appoint serving judges as arbitrators (and cheaper);
• an update on how arbitration in Italy is being used for ‘freedom to operate’ rulings, giving entrepreneurs and innovators security that, if they proceed with a particular venture, they would not hit problems with third-party owned IP rights; and
• a Ukrainian perspective on how to enforce awards against Russia by targeting the assets of Gazprom and other – nominally - private companies.
