Osborne Clarke's International Arbitration Group is proud to announce the publication of Arbitration Law Over Borders Comparative Guide, in which the firm's head of the international arbitration group, Greg Fullelove and senior associate Katie Bewlock have contributed the England and Wales jurisdiction review.

Published and available from Global Legal PostArbitration Law Over Borders Comparative Guide is written by expert practitioners and edited by Liz Snodgrass and Carmen Martinez Lopez. The guide covers all the key aspects of the arbitral process across 16 jurisdictions, including the requirements for validity of arbitral agreements, rules concerning the constitution of the arbitral tribunal, and available measures from local courts to assist the arbitral proceeding.

It also provides detailed information on general procedural minimum requirements, rules for the validity of awards, availability of post-award proceedings, and enforcement of foreign awards, as well as applicable professional and ethical rules, and the approaches on third-party funding in each jurisdiction.

Greg commented:

"Katie and I were delighted to be asked to contribute to this project and to work with the excellent co-contributors and editors of this insightful guide. No doubt it will assist many in the field as they research and compare the various challenges and opportunities in international arbitration across key jurisdictions."
