INAUGURAL EVENTS SERIES
HELD ON WEDNESDAY 11 APRIL 2018, AT THE INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL
In conjunction with the Paris Arbitration Week 2018
and with the generous support of McDermott Will & Emery
The Inaugural Events Series provided an opportunity for exchange with the arbitration community about the Delos approach to arbitration and its emphasis on time and cost efficiency, combined with quality and flexibility.
In Paris, we put the spotlight on the powers of the arbitrators. The Delos Rules of Arbitration require arbitrators to take a proactive approach to the resolution of disputes, and make broad powers available to them for this purpose. The Rules further provide that disputes must be dealt with fairly, expeditiously and at proportionate cost. Professors Pierre Mayer and Maxi Scherer explored the limits to arbitrators’ exercise of their powers.
A report on this event was prepared by Marine Koenig and published on 28 May 2019 in the Kluwer Arbitration Blog under the heading: "A Report on the Delos Paris Inaugural Event (April 2018) - Powers of the Arbitrator: How Far is too Far?"
