The Guide to Damages in International Arbitration - Fourth Edition

Global Arbitration Review’s Guide to Damages in International Arbitration was launched to fill a gap in literature – namely, the lack of a handy desk-book on damages in international arbitration for anyone wishing to feel more numerate. As such, it will assist arbitrators, advocates and experts – indeed anyone who needs to know how best to present, or appreciate, a party’s case.

Conceived as the text book for an imaginary in-depth course on damages, it’s proved enormously popular since its launch in 2016. It covers the nuts and bolts of damages from all sides – legal and economic, including simple explanations of all the relevant economic models, plus the point at which consensus around those models breaks down.

This fourth edition takes the practical format even further – adding visuals and worked examples to bring the material to life and leave the reader feeling even more confident in their new understanding. This new edition also includes a chapter on damages issues in light of covid-19.
