The Guide to Investment Treaty Protection and Enforcement is a guide on the practical side of investor–state disputes. It traces the concept of investment protection through its full life cycle – from negotiation of a treaty to enforcement of an award derived from it and everything in-between. In doing so, it seeks to guide the reader in what to do and think – how to strategise – at every stage of a dispute. As always with GAR, the content is enriched with a series of contributions from arbitrators, on topics du jour.
Edited by José Astigarraga of Reed Smith LLP and containing the knowledge and experience of leading practitioners from throughout the region, Latin Lawyer and Global Arbitration Review are delighted to publish The Guide to International Arbitration in Latin America.
It provides guidance that will benefit all arbitration specialists in Latin America, one of the most important regions in the world for international arbitration, drawing on the expertise of highly sophisticated practitioners to draw out trends and give practitioners the tools they need to navigate the arbitration marketplace in the region today.
Few clients seek arbitration counsel as often as those in telecoms, or have such high-stakes disputes when they do. And yet, to date, there has been no definitive book for either counsel or client on this fascinating genre of work
Global Arbitration Review’s The Guide to Telecoms Arbitrations aims to change that. Written by some of the world’s leading names, it covers the most pressing conceptual and practical aspects of telecoms arbitrations, from questions of arbitrability to topics such as the idiosyncrasies of space and satellite disputes, problems of performance caused by sanctions regimes, and how to deal with armed conflict. It concludes with a regional overview.
Edited by academics who teach construction contracts and arbitration at the School of International Arbitration in London, GAR’s Guide to Construction Arbitration pulls together both substantive and procedural sides of the subject in one volume. Across four parts, it moves fromexplaining the mechanics of FIDIC contracts and particular procedural questions that arise at the disputes stage, to how to organise an effective arbitration, before ending with a section on the specifics of certain contracts and of key countries and regions. The chapters are written by leaders in the field from both the civil and common law worlds and other relevant professions.
This fifth edition is fully up to date with the new FIDIC suites and includes chapters on expert witnesses, claims resolution, dispute boards, ADR, agreements to arbitrate, investment treaty arbitration and Canada. It is a must-have for anyone seeking to improve their understanding of construction disputes or construction law.
Released to coincide with the new IBA rules on evidence, The Guide to Evidence in International Arbitration steers a course through what can otherwise be one of the most divisive topics in international arbitration. The Guide to Evidence in International Arbitration fills a gap in the literature by bringing together law and practice and providing a holistic view of the issues surrounding evidence in international arbitration, from strategic, cultural and ethical questions to what to do in certain settings. Along the way it offers various proposals for improvements to the received approach.
Successful advocacy is always a challenge. Throw in different languages, a matrix of (exotic) laws and differing cultural backgrounds as well and you have advocacy in international arbitration.
Global Arbitration Review’s The Guide to Advocacy is for lawyers who wish to transcend these obstacles and be as effective in the international sphere as they are used to being elsewhere. Aimed at practitioners of all backgrounds and at all levels of experience, this Guide covers everything from case strategy to the hard skills of written advocacy and cross-examination, and much more. It also contains the wit and wisdom on advocacy of more than 40 practising arbitrators, including some of the world’s biggest names in this field.
Enforcement used to be a non-issue in international arbitration. Most losing parties simply paid. Not so any more. The time spent on post-award matters has increased vastly, and challenges to awards have become the norm.
The Challenging and Enforcing Arbitration Awards Guide is a comprehensive volume that addresses this new reality. It offers practical know-how on both sides of the coin: challenging and enforcing awards. Part I provides a full thematic overview, while Part II delves into the specifics seat by seat, now covering 29 jurisdictions.
M&A disputes can be unique in their hostility and complexity. The M&A Arbitration Guide – published by Global Arbitration Review – is a practical guide on what merger parties should think about when it comes to disputes. It pools the wisdom of specialists on how to prevent these disputes arising and how best to resolve them when it is too late. The guide is structured in two sections. Part I consists of 10 chapters on planning and procedural issues, covering everything from drafting clauses to how to structure contracts to minimise the potential for disputes. Part II offers a geographical survey of important differences in national laws that may affect the outcome of a dispute. It is written by 39 specialists from a variety of backgrounds and takes a practical approach throughout.
Traditionally, large IP owners have been hesitant about international arbitration – too scary (no prospect of appeal), inferior decision makers (compared with top judges), etc. Now, many are changing their minds. This timely book sets out how arbitration can be tailored to meet the needs of IP owners and dispels some of the myths surrounding its use. It is in four parts that mirror the life cycle of disputes and will be of interest to newcomers and aficionados alike.
This fifth edition of Global Arbitration Review’s Damages in International Arbitration Guide is designed to help all participants in the international arbitration community understand damages issues more clearly and to 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 book is a work in progress, with new and updated material being added to each successive edition. In particular, this fifth edition incorporates updated chapters from various authors and contributions from new authors. This edition seeks to improve the presentation of the substance through the use of visuals such as charts, graphs, tables and diagrams; worked-out examples and case studies to explain how the principles discussed apply in practice; and flow charts and checklists setting out the steps in the analyses or the quantitative models. The authors have also been encouraged to make available online additional resources, such as spreadsheets, detailed calculations, additional worked examples or case studies, and other materials.
We hope this revised edition advances the objective of the earlier editions 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. We continue to welcome comments from readers on how the next edition might be further improved.
Compendium of Unicorns: A Global Guide to Women Arbitrators is the brainchild of Mute Off Thursdays, the female virtual-discussion group for mid to senior-level women in arbitration, prepared in partnership with GAR and Burford Capital.
“Unicorns” in the title reflects a comment, once upon a time, by a particular man that he would appoint qualified female arbitrators, if only he could find some. To assist him and the rest of us, the guide profiles 176 women arbitrators and provides information about their experience of the type that’s generally useful when choosing an arbitrator. By presenting everything in one place, the book makes it easier for users to identify suitable female candidates for appointments.
The content is in three sections. Section one lists the 176 female arbitrators included; section two categorises them into various helpful indices – including by level of experience, areas of specialist knowledge, experience under particular substantive laws, languages spoken etc; section three provides Q&As where the arbitrators go into more depth about their expertise and approach. The book also includes contact details for each featured arbitrator.

The book has been edited by J William Rowley QC, Doak Bishop and Gordon E Kaiser.
