09.45: Session one: Arbitral institutions – what does value for money mean for users?

In a growing market of arbitral institutions, with many claiming to be the “credible option”, how do you choose the right institution for your case? Whilst similarities between institutions do exist, fundamental differences remain, making it difficult to know which approach is best. In this session a panel of leading names will share the benefit of their experience to help you get under the surface of how different institutions really operate, discover the current hidden gems, and above all, learn how to match the right case to the right institution.

In particular they are expected to discuss:

  • The implications of different methods of arbitrator remuneration
  • Levels of scrutiny – how much is enough?
  • The benefits of detailed guidance from the institution regarding case management techniques
  • An institution’s expectations on the duration of an arbitration

11.30: Session two: The GAR Live Debate

In Oxford Union style, we will hear teams of debaters argue in favour of, or against, a motion. A panel of judges will then voice their opinions on what has been heard, before choosing which side to support and giving reasons for their decisions. 

Motion: “This house believes that the Prague Rules are the best thing to happen to arbitration since sliced bread.”

Judges:
Daniel Busse, Busse Disputes

Debaters:
Marieke van Hooijdonk, Allen & Overy
Vladimir Khvalei, Baker McKenzie
Judith Sawang, Wendelstein

12.45: Networking Lunch

14.00: Session three: Litigation Funding unravelled – dispelling the myths and making it work

Litigation funding, a once controversial topic in international arbitration, has become an increasingly commonplace feature when financing arbitration disputes. Whilst some industries are well acquainted with litigation finance, for others it is still something relatively new. This session will aim to bridge both camps by discussing first the current state of the art in funding, including new products and specialist vehicles being launched, and then exploring “how to do funding right” – looking into the inner mechanisms of funding, offering a glimpse of how it works in real life.

Amongst other things, the panel is expected to discuss:

  • Finding the best funder and terms, and knowing what to look for from a Continental European perspective
  • The role of the client, firm and funder – trust versus control, which is better?
  •  Getting the deal done – Structuring commercial terms, legal terms and insurance products. 
  • Hot topics, including: should the disclosure of third-party funding arrangements be a feature of arbitrations? Should litigation finance be used as a marketing and business tool? Should there be security for costs when litigation funding is involved?
