Debevoise & Plimpton LLP partner Ina C. Popova and associates Elizabeth Nielsen and Megan Corrarino recently contributed to the USA chapter of the newly published Delos Guide to Arbitration Places (GAP), offering in-depth analysis of New York and Washington D.C. as major arbitral seats.
The GAP provides in-house counsel, corporate lawyers and arbitration practitioners with insight into the legal framework of a large range of jurisdictions for the purposes of negotiating the choice of arbitral seats and conducting arbitral proceedings in those jurisdictions.
Additionally, each chapter includes a “traffic light assessment” which rates the jurisdiction in six key categories: law, judiciary, legal expertise, rights of representation, accessibility and ethics. A green light indicates a positive assessment of the jurisdiction on the given criterion, yellow advises readers to remain cautious and a red light indicates the potential for significant difficulty.
