The IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Commercial Arbitration were adopted by the International Bar Association (IBA) Council in June 1999. A revised version entered into effect in May 2010. Both the original Rules and the revision were prepared by working groups representing the major Anglo-American and Continental legal systems and reflect a harmonization of the evidence taking procedures commonly used in international arbitration. After 12 years of being in force, the IBA Rules have found widespread acceptance in the arbitration community. With this first comprehensive commentary on the IBA Rules, the book's contributions provide an overview on the case law and doctrine, with a special focus on Swiss arbitration law and current hot topics, such as legal privilege and the efficiency of proceedings.

International arbitration faces the challenge of the exponential increase in the volume of electronically stored information. While there has been a convergence in the accepted scope of disclosure in international arbitration (chiefly reflected in the IBA Rules on Evidence) there is widespread concern about the potential burdens of disclosure of electronic documents, with regard to the litigation experience. Arbitrators are rapidly having to come to terms with these issues in an arbitration context, in order to meet the needs and expectations of the parties. A number of arbitration institutions are currently considering rule changes or protocols to address the disclosure of electronic documents. This publication analyses the procedural, practical and technical issues and addresses the appropriate approach to electronic disclosure in international arbitration, including those lessons and principles that can usefully be adapted from the litigation experience. Contributors include leading arbitrators, arbitration counsel, in-house counsel and IT experts, including leading experts in the field of electronic data management.

Présentation de l'éditeur : "In recent years, a growing body of provisions called "protocols," "guidelines," "checklists" or even "rules" has emerged in international arbitration. Unlike national or international law, or institutional arbitral rules, these provisions are not "mandatory" for arbitration participants. They range from provisions that can be incorporated into the parties' agreement to arbitrate to suggestions as to the best practices that arbitrators and other arbitration participants may choose to follow. These materials are often collectively referred to as "soft law." Soft Law in International Arbitration provides a guide to what the editors consider to be the most useful of such materials. The book organizes these materials into five categories, each introduced with commentary by a prominent member of the international arbitration community. Thus, the eighteen documents contained in this book can be regarded as helping to fill in the spaces that substantive law and arbitration rules have intentionally left blank. Soft Law in International Arbitration is an indispensable commentary for practitioners and academics alike."



Document Production in International Arbitration

Because document production can discover written evidence that would otherwise not be available, it is often the key to winning a case. However, document production proceedings can be a costly and time-consuming exercise, and arbitral awards in particular are often challenged on grounds that relate to document production orders. The task of balancing the conflicting interests of the parties in this context is a major responsibility of arbitral tribunals. This book's analysis focuses on whether there exist legal principles on which arbitrators should establish rules of document production in both civil law and common law countries, and shows how international arbitration is affected. The author examines the relevant discretion of arbitral tribunals under US, English, Swiss, German, and Austrian law, and under nine of the most important sets of institutional rules, including the ICC Rules, the LCIA Rules, and the Swiss Rules. The presentation mines case law and legal literature for concepts based on the common expectations of the parties, the legitimate expectations of a party, the duty to balance different procedural expectations of the parties, the presumed intent of the parties, the underlying hypothetical bargain, implied terms, and the arbitrators' discretion. Among the topics and issues investigated are the following: - procedural rules on document production versus procedural flexibility; - how arbitral tribunals can modify the IBA Rules on a case-by-case basis; - discretion granted by legislation in each country covered; - electronic document production; - how to deal with privilege and confidentiality objections; - how to formulate or answer document production requests; - effective sanctions in case of non-compliance with procedural orders of the arbitral tribunal; - what grounds for annulment and non-enforcement a losing party can raise in what countries. Perhaps the greatest benefit of the book is the inclusion of model clauses, commensurate with both civil law and common law expectations. The author explicates the advantages and inconveniences of each model clause, and clarifies the influence of each clause on the efficiency of the proceedings and the enforcement risk. For practitioners, the book not only gives counsel a thorough overview of possible arguments for and against document production, but also assists arbitrators find a way through the jungle of opinions on the interpretation of the IBA Rules. Legal academics will appreciate the author's deeply informed analysis and commentary and the book's contribution to increasing the predictability of arbitral decisions on document production and showing how issues in dispute can be narrowed by tailor-made rules, thus helping to raise the efficiency and reduce the costs of arbitral proceedings.

Documentary evidence is at the heart of the arbitral process. Arbitrators are increasingly confronted with new challenges, such as requests for E-Discovery, as well as ever more frequent objections to confidentiality and privilege. Document production may also confront arbitrators with difficult issues of fraud and forgery. Further, Arbitral tribunals may have to decide which rules apply to issues such as the evidentiary value of documents or their admissibility. The practice of documentary evidence is changing as international arbitrators look for transnational solutions capable of striking a proper balance between efficiency and fairness. Transnational instruments such as the IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Commercial Arbitration may need to evolve to accommodate new approaches and solutions.

This third edition of The College of Commercial Arbitrators Guide to Best Practices in Commercial Arbitration has been substantially expanded not only to ensure that it is up to date but, also, to incorporate several new chapters on diverse subjects, including intratribunal relations, arbitrators’ fees, eDiscovery, and hybrid arbitration processes. Summary of New Material •Twice as long as the second edition •Substantial revision and expansion of existing chapters •Four new chapters (Arbitrators Fees & Expenses, eDiscovery, Intratribunal Relations, Hybrid Arbitration Proceedings) •Updated to take into account evolving case law and to address newly emerging issues relating to the management of commercial arbitrations •Comparative tables regarding certain aspects of in major international rules and international arbitration institution policies •Revised to take into account: ♦The new 2013 CPR Administered Arbitration Rules ♦The 2013 revisions to the AAA Commercial Rules ♦Various protocols and guidelines relating to domestic commercial arbitration ♦The 2011 revisions to the JAMS International Rules ♦The 2012 revisions to the ICDR Articles ♦The 2010 revisions to the UNCITRAL Rules ♦The 2013 IBA Guidelines on Party Representation in International Arbitration ♦The 2010 revisions to the IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration ♦Various protocols and guidelines relating to domestic commercial arbitration The aim of the Guide is to identify best practices that arbitrators can employ to provide users of arbitration with the highest possible standards of economy and fairness in the disposition of business disputes. This third edition of the Guide refines the guidance contained in the first and second editions to take into account developing case law, revised institutional rules, advancements in arbitration techniques and thinking, and also addresses newly evolving issues such as electronic discovery. There are significant differences in the ways in which arbitrations are conducted in different substantive fields of commerce and among different arbitrators in the same field. Techniques that are appropriate and useful in one case may be quite unsuited to another. For this reason, it is not possible to prescribe a single set of best practices that commercial arbitrators should invariably follow in every case. Rather, this Guide attempts to identify the principal issues that typically arise in each successive stage of an arbitration and to explain the pros and cons of various preferred ways of handling each issue. From this perspective, the best practice for an arbitrator is to carefully consider the merits of alternative techniques available for dealing with a particular issue and to then select the technique best suited to the situation. In addition, the Guide attempts to identify the full array of practices available for use in complex arbitrations, which can be adapted and streamlined for simpler cases. Formed in 2001, the College of Commercial Arbitrators is a non-profit organization composed of prominent, experienced commercial arbitrators who believe that a national association of commercial arbitrators can provide a meaningful contribution to the profession, to the public, and to the businesses and lawyers who depend on arbitration as a primary means of dispute resolution. Its mission includes promoting professionalism and high ethical practice in commercial arbitration, adopting and maintaining standards of conduct, providing peer training and professional development, and developing and publishing "best practices" materials. This work is the College's principal vehicle for fulfilling several aspects of its mission. Many seasoned and knowledgeable practitioners generously contributed their time and insights to the creation of this Guide.
