The Guide to Damages in International Arbitration - Second Edition

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.

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. This second edition builds upon the successful reception of the first edition published last year.

In particular, this second edition incorporates updated chapters from various authors and features several new chapters addressing such issues as the function and role of damages experts, the applicable valuation approach, country risk premium, and damages in gas and electricity arbitrations.

This edition is over 460 pages, and 30 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. This book is designed to help all participants in the international arbitration community understand damages issues more clearly and communicate those issues more effectively to tribunals to further the common objective of assisting arbitrators in rendering more accurate and well-reasoned awards on damages.

The Guide to Advocacy - Second Edition

The Guide to Advocacy is a practical book for specialists and would-be specialists on how to be persuasive during international arbitration, featuring unique insight from well-known arbitrators on advocacy.

The Guide is a useful tool for junior lawyers who wish to develop their advocacy skills, as well as a manual for civil trained lawyers who would like to feel more at ease with cross-examination.

Woven throughout are gems from big name arbitrators – tips, complaints, musings and reminiscences – providing a new, 360-degree view of written and oral submissions.

New for the Second Edition:

Building on the first edition, the second edition contains several new chapters and a fresh tranche of arbitrator contributions.

The object remains the same, however, to provide guidance on persuading an arbitrator to rule in your favour. While the first edition covers the basics of doing just that, through chapters on, inter alia, written submissions, cross-examination, opening submissions and closing arguments, this second edition delves deeper by exploring ‘Cultural Considerations in Advocacy’. These chapters contain observations of help when some of the players in the arbitration – be they arbitrators, opponents or others – hale from Asia, Latin America, United States or the UK.

The Guide to Energy Arbitrations - Second Edition

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.
