Six of our international arbitration lawyers have contributed their expertise to the first edition of Global Arbitration Review’s The Guide to Challenging and Enforcing Arbitration Awards. The two-part guide offers practical know-how on challenging and enforcing arbitration awards.

Enforcement used to be an irrelevance in international arbitration. Most losing parties simply paid. Not so any more. The time spent on post-award matters has increased vastly.

The Guide to Challenging and Enforcing Arbitration Awards is a comprehensive volume that addresses this new reality. It offers practical know-how on both sides of the coin: challenging, and enforcing, awards. Part I provides a full thematic overview, while Part II delves into the specifics seat by seat. In total, the Guide covers 29 arbitration seats.
