Procedural Issues in International Investment Arbitration

; Rahim Moloo

«[This] treatise provides a comprehensive resource that fills a gap in academia, resulting in a useful handbook for all arbitration practitioners. Not only may it be consulted for similar procedural issues but, with some creativity, it may also serve as a resource to consult when faced with unforeseen novel procedural challenges in the future. It truly creates value by integrating its vast collection of tribunal decisions, provided in the second half of the book, into nearly every chapter of procedural analysis in the first half of the book. The two parts of the treatise complement one another so that the reader has a comprehensive, go-to handbook. For many offices, this treatise would be a great addition to their library.»

Om boka

Procedural issues are an area of increasing complexity and concern in modern investment arbitration, and one in which very little guidance currently exists. Indeed, there are a number of important points of departure from the procedural rules commonly adopted in the context of international commercial arbitration.

Procedural Issues in International Investment Arbitration is the first text of its kind to address this gap, examining the most prevalent and controversial procedural issues that arise in investment arbitrations conducted under the ICSID, UNCITRAL, and other arbitral rules. Written by international arbitration experts, the book takes the reader through an investment arbitration in chronological order, identifying each key procedural issue in turn and providing details of the relevant
precedents. It charts the process of an arbitration from applicable law and first sessions right through to post-hearing applications and costs. Fully cross-referenced and tabled, Procedural Issues in International Investment Arbitration is an invaluable and practical guide to issues of increasing importance
and relevance in ICSID and other arbitrations today.

Carolyn B. Lam and Matthew N. Drossos, White & Case LLP , Journal of World Investment and Trade

«Books about the substance of foreign investment law - typically delving into treaty text and associated arbitral jurisprudence - are plentiful. Rarely encountered, by contrast, are books about the process of investor-State arbitration, especially the process as established in practice through the hundreds of investor-State arbitrations to have occurred over the last 25 years. Procedural Issues in International Investment Arbitration by Messrs Commission and Moloo (hereinafter Procedural Issues) therefore is a distinctive and, as I suggest below, major contribution to the current literature.»

Jack J Coe, Jr, ICSID Review

«According to the book's preface, the authors were attempting to produce a work to which arbitrators, academics and students would be receptive. [...] In this endeavor, the authors have clearly succeeded. The book will be a wonderful resource for law students (and their professors), lawyers (both in-house and external) and arbitrators. It offers a measure of detail about the process that will promote well-informed expectations and more confident decision making. Even those who deal regularly with investor-State disputes will want to own Procedural Issues. The rich source material and analysis that it assembles can only improve any merely anecdotal sense of the process.»

Jack J Coe, Jr, ICSID Review

«In sum, this book is another excellent addition to the Oxford International Arbitration Series providing an up-to-date practitioner-orientated guide through the intricacies of investment treaty arbitration procedures. In light of the increasing costs and time involved in investment arbitration proceedings, a deep knowledge and understanding of the procedural nuances is very valuable and can help avoid unnecessary delays and procedural mistakes to the detriment of a party.»

Prof. Nikos Lavranos, European Investment Law and Arbitration Review

«Procedural Issues in International Investment Arbitration is a concise handbook, which is informed by the authors' first-hand experience with investment disputes and garnished with extensive footnote references to relevant case law. There is no comparable step-by-step explanation of the investor-State arbitration process on the market, and the book deserves a wide readership. Less experienced counsel or arbitrators will appreciate the book as a primer to investment arbitration, which, for a legal text, makes for an astonishingly good cover-to-cover read. Advanced practitioners will find a competent expert compendium of each step of the arbitral process. The authors have succeeded in writing an advanced book that remains highly accessible.»

Dirk Pulkowski, ICC Dispute Resolution Bulletin

«Apart from its obvious benefits for practitioners, the book should, with its impressive array of data, help to inform the public debate on investment arbitration, which so often focuses on matters of procedure (such as transparency). The authors are also to be congratulated for making their discussion of the seemingly dry topic of procedure an entertaining and thought-provoking read.»

Antonio R. Parra, Honorary Secretary-General, ICCA

«The approach of the text, essentially taking readers through the life cycle of an investment arbitration, makes it all the more readable and user-friendly. The authors have written a clear, concise and very helpful treatise that will certainly become a 'go to' guide for those interested in ISDS.»

Meg Kinnear, Secretary-General, ICSID (From the Foreword)

«This is a genuinely useful book on procedural practice in treaty arbitration, for counsel and arbitrators alike. I have had my copy for less than a week, and have already used it for guidance on three occasions. The appended tables of publicly available jurisprudence on specific procedural matters are invaluable.»

Lucy Reed, National University of Singapore

«Procedural Issues in International Investment Arbitration is nurtured with broad practical experience, extensive knowledge of cases and the literature, and two very sharp minds [...] The books main advantage, however, is that as a practical guide, it has immense potential to empower inexperienced investors, lawyers and government officials [...] This is writing as a means of empowerment, at a time when it is most needed for the future of investor-state dispute settlement.»

Professor Nicolas Angelet, Liedekerke Wolters Waelbroeck Kirkpatrick

«This is an extremely valuable tool for practitioners and academics alike. It covers the most important procedural issues in international investment arbitration in a systematic and comprehensive manner. The extensive tables are a treasure trove of information on a wide range of questions.»

Christoph Schreuer, zeiler.partners

«Arbitration practitioners and students will welcome this book, which is a useful tool and invaluable resource on key procedural issues.»
