Doppeltes Neuland

Doppeltes Neuland

Mit diesem Schlagwort lässt sich meine Anwaltsstation bei WAGNER Arbitration ganz gut umreißen. Neuland für mich als Greenhorn was anwaltliche Arbeit in der Praxis betrifft, aber auch für die Kanzlei selbst, da es zuvor noch keinen Stationsreferendar gegeben hatte. Ein für beide Seiten spannender Testlauf, der zumindest von meiner Seite aus in Gänze glückte.

Promoting Settlements between Disputants as Arbitrator

Promoting Settlements between Disputants as Arbitrator

A subject that appears to be of increasing relevance and interest in arbitral practice is the capacity of arbitrators to facilitate settlement negotiations between disputants. Klaus-Peter Berger and Ole Jensen of the University of Cologne have recently published a very passionate article in the Fordham Law Journal on precisely this topic, promoting the idea that it is actually part of the arbitrator’s mandate to assist the parties as settlement facilitator.

Investitionsschiedsverfahren – Fehlt es wirklich an Transparenz?

Investitionsschiedsverfahren – Fehlt es wirklich an Transparenz?

Die mit dem TTIP verbundenen Pläne, Investitionsstreitigkeiten vor Schiedsgerichten auszutragen, lösten in Teilen der Bevölkerung einen Proteststurm aus. Die Sprache geht von „Geheimgerichten“ bis zu einer „Schattenjustiz in Nobelhotels“, die unter Ausschluss der Öffentlichkeit agiert. Auch die zunächst unnötig strenge Geheimhaltung der Vertragsentwürfe dürfte dieser Auffassung Nährboden bereitet haben.

Investment Arbitration – is there a lack of transparency?

Investment Arbitration – is there a lack of transparency?

As TTIP was being drafted and deliberated, the idea that investment disputes would be brought before arbitral tribunals triggered a storm of public outcry.  Arbitral tribunals were disparaged as secret courts, making judgments in the privacy of luxury hotels.
