Welcome

By Marijke Wolfs, Secretary General ICC Netherlands

Overview of ICC Dispute Resolution Services

What are the standard procedures at the ICC and how do these relate to the newly introduced arrangements for emergency measures and expedited procedures? Attention will also be paid to practical guidance for the management of arbitral proceedings, applicable to both parties and tribunals.

By Marieke van Hooijdonk, Partner at Allen & Overy and Member of the ICC International Court of Arbitration

Emergency Measures

An arrangement for the appointment of an ‘emergency arbitrator’ has been introduced in 2014, pursuant to which emergency measures (orders) may be sought. How does this work and what are the opportunities and threats? How do you preserve the quality of the procedure when it becomes an emergency procedure? An overview of recent experiences will be shared.

Break

Expedited Procedure

In 2017, the ICC introduced rules for an ‘expedited procedure’ on the merits for disputes with a value up to USD 2 million, which results in a final award. How does this work, what have we learned since then and what are the benefits and pitfalls?

By Rogier Schellaars, Partner at Van Doorne and Member of the ICC International Court of Arbitration
