International Commercial Arbitration in New York (2nd Edition)

Edited by James H. Carter, John Fellas

Abstract

New York is a leading venue for international commercial arbitration, home to the headquarters of the International Centre for Dispute Resolution, the international branch of the American Arbitration Association, and many leaders in the international arbitration field. New York also serves as the locus of several prominent arbitration firms’ central offices. This book encompasses five years of developments in New York and other U.S. international arbitration law since the first edition appeared. Every chapter has been updated, and the new edition includes an entirely new chapter on the legal and practical aspects of conducting an arbitration hearing in New York, covering such subjects as rights to appear as a representative of a party, subpoenas to compel attendance of witnesses, confidentiality of proceedings, and witness testimony and instructions. Each chapter elucidates a vital topic, including the existing New York legal landscape, drafting considerations for clauses designating New York as the place of arbitration, and material and advice on selecting arbitrators. The book also covers a series of topics at the intersection of the arbitral process and the New York courts, including jurisdiction, enforcing arbitration agreements, obtaining preliminary relief, and discovery. Class action arbitration, challenging and enforcing arbitral awards, and biographical materials on New York-based international arbitrators are also included.
