Osborne Clarke's International Arbitration Group is delighted to announce the publication of International Arbitration in England: Perspectives in Times of Change, edited by the head of the international arbitration group, Greg Fullelove and associate director Daniel Harrison together with Laila Hamzi, a barrister at List A Barristers. The book is published and available from Wolters Kluwer.
With a foreword from Paula Hodges QC, the book explores the evolution of the case law, practice and legal environment in which international arbitration in England is practised. A diverse group of leading arbitration practitioners has contributed chapters to the book, which charts developments in English arbitral practice across a range of highly topical subjects. These include diversity, ethics, climate change disputes in arbitration, challenges to arbitrators (particularly in light of the Supreme Court case Halliburton v. Chubb), the impact of sanctions on arbitration in England and reform of the 1996 Arbitration Act.
Greg commented: "It's been a great pleasure and privilege to work on this collection of essays with my co-editors Daniel Harrison and Laila Hamzi, my co-author Mark Wassouf and all the other talented authors who produced such fine chapters on a range of topics. My thanks to them all for their time and efforts and to the teams at Wolters Kluwer and Osborne Clarke for its support throughout the project."
Daniel added: "I am so grateful to my co-editors Greg Fullelove and Laila Hamzi, and to all of the wonderful authors who provided thoughtful chapters on a wide range of topics. My thanks also go to the fantastic team at Wolters Kluwer and as always my colleagues from Osborne Clarke."
