Are you considering several potential arbitrator candidates? How will you make your final decision? Andreas believes that it is the parties’ legitimate interest to know their party-appointed arbitrator in advance. This is part of the due diligence in selecting arbitrators, particularly in large and complex international arbitrations. Relying only on hearsay, other third-party information, the arbitrator’s publications or so-called “rankings” is less than ideal.
The best way to determine the optimal candidate is to have direct interaction with the prospective arbitrator by conducting a pre-appointment interview under observation of the IBA / CIArb Guidelines. Andreas will be delighted to participate in a pre-appointment interview. To book your (non-obliging) pre-appointment interview with Andreas now, please click on the button below.
