On 29 May 2012, starting at 17.30 CET, the SAA will arrange its Annual General Meeting and a seminar on “Emergency Arbitration – a valuable addition to the tool box or just another marketing trick?”

Numerous arbitration institutes have added Emergency Arbitration rules to their toolkit over the last decade. The rules look good on paper – but how do they work in practice? What opportunities and challenges are parties, emergency arbitrators and institutions faced with when applying the rules? Do the rules give applicants real tactical advantages over the respondent? Do the rules provide appropriate safeguards for the defendant? And how do you as an emergency arbitrator go about your task?  The seminar will address these questions and take a critical look at the practical application of the emergency arbitration rules of the SCC, ICDR and ICC.

 The panel of speakers will include:  

  • James Hosking, Chaffetz Lindsey, New York
  • Francesca Mazza, ICC, Paris
  • Jan-Michael Ahrens, Siemens, Erlangen
  • Lars Edlund, Grönberg, Stockholm
  • Niklas Åstenius, Mannheimer Swartling, Malmö
  • Gisela Knuts, Roschier, Helsinki/Stockholm (moderator)
