International arbitration: dealing with delay

Save this if you litigate abroad. "Faster, cheaper and better" is not, unfortunately, every business litigant's experience in obtaining and enforcing awards in international arbitration. But even under the current scheme of laws, conventions and treaties, arbitration still makes sense. So our friend Mel Simburg of Simburg Ketter, the Seattle member of the International Business Law Consortium, has written "Delay and Sanctions in International Arbitration." Simburg's guide is our kind of article by a fine lawyer. In 8 pages, Simburg (a) takes us through the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act, the New York Convention of 1958 (on the recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards), and the procedural rules of UNCITRAL, WIPO and ICDR (international AAA), and then (b) offers practical devices and strategies for moving arbitrations along, combating delay and the use of sanctions.
