In previous years, the firm's Arbitration Group has conducted surveys on various aspects of international arbitration: conflicts of interest (2010), delay (2012) and document production (2013). We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many international arbitration practitioners within our preferred firm network, and more widely, who responded to those surveys.
In 2012, our International Arbitration Group conducted a survey on the problem of delay in international arbitration. The 2012 survey demonstrated that there is a considerable amount of concern about the time it takes to complete arbitration proceedings. There are various reasons for this – many of them perfectly legitimate. However, what the survey responses highlight is that arbitrators and parties alike should continue to be vigilant in monitoring whether arbitration practice matches the objective of achieving a process that is both fair and efficient. This involves keeping under review how well each of the individual steps in the process meets those criteria. With this in mind, we decided to conduct a survey on attitudes to document production in international arbitration.
In 2010 our International Arbitration Group conducted a survey on perceived conflicts of interest involving arbitrators and advocates in international arbitration. Given the high level of interest shown in the 2010 survey, we decided to conduct a second survey on delay in the arbitration process.
