Dealing with interim measures applications – whether representing the applicant or respondent - requires a familiarity with arbitral rules and legal principles, good judgment, and quick work under pressure. And interim measures can be of major strategic or tactical importance in an arbitration, so it is crucial to get it right.
This webinar provides an overview of the legal framework as well as practical issues and in-depth consideration of a case study featuring applications to an arbitral tribunal for two common types of interim measures: an interim injunction and security for costs. The speakers will discuss these applications from the perspective of claimant, respondent and arbitrator, providing an essential guide to how to make or defend an interim measures application. This webinar will be particularly useful for junior and mid-level lawyers as well as anyone who wants a refresher on this important topic.
Webinar participants will be able to watch and listen to (via computer audio or telephone line) the video presentation and Q&A discussion on their screens, receive a PDF copy of the presentation slides, as well as participate in the Q&A discussion by sending in their questions to the moderator via text using the built-in Q&A function.
