Overview - economic damages

29 April 2020

Over the past few decades, a growing interdependence among world economies has emerged, bringing with it an ever-increasing amount of cross-border trade of commodities and services, the flow of international capital and the rapid spread of technological innovation. The impact of economic globalisation has led to a substantial rise in commercial international arbitrations as counterparties have selected neutral and independent international arbitration seats to adjudicate their largest commercial disputes. At the same time, the rapid technological progress observed in many complex industries (including energy, telecoms, consumer electronics, life sciences, etc) has directly translated into more complicated issues in international arbitrations.

Despite the still-growing influence of international arbitration, transnational litigation is on the rise as well. In a number of situations and circumstances, parties consciously decide against arbitration and favour the resolution of disputes before state courts, especially in countries known or thought to have an efficient and transparent court system. Other disputes, by their nature or owing to other constraints, are rarely subject to arbitration, either generally or at least in certain countries or under certain national laws. The often highly complex areas of patent and trademark validity, anticompetitive and cartel damages issues, securities disputes, and product liability come to mind.
