Debevoise & Plimpton LLP is pleased to announce the publication of the second edition of The Guide to Damages in International Arbitration. The Guide aims to make the subject of damages in international arbitration more understandable and less intimidating for arbitrators and other participants in the field and to help participants present these issues more effectively to tribunals.
The second edition incorporates updated chapters from various authors and features several new chapters addressing such issues as the function and role of damages experts, the applicable valuation approach, country risk premium, and damages in gas and electricity arbitrations. The Guide is divided into four sections, and includes a chapter on “Damages Principles in Investment Arbitration,” by Debevoise partner Mark W. Friedman and senior associate Floriane Lavaud.
The objective of The Guide to Damages in International Arbitration is to help all participants in the international arbitration community—from the arbitrators to the parties to counsel and experts—understand damages issues more clearly and communicate those issues more effectively to tribunals to further the common objective of assisting arbitrators in rendering more accurate and well-reasoned awards on damages.
