13 July 2021

Debevoise international counsel, Cameron Sim, has authored a landmark publication which is the first major work of its kind to examine the practice and theory of emergency arbitration. This procedure enables parties to obtain urgent interim relief during the period required for formation of an arbitral tribunal.

Published by Oxford University Press as part of its Oxford International Arbitration Series, the book identifies and develops 15 principles of emergency arbitration to guide arbitration users, practitioners and emergency arbitrators through the commencement, conduct, decision-making, and enforcement phases of proceedings

It also provides a comprehensive analysis of leading emergency arbitration rules and their application, while offering practical guidance on substantive and procedural issues that might arise in an emergency arbitration.

With a foreword by Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury (the former President of the UK Supreme Court), the book also contains in-depth analysis of complex doctrinal issues which impact on the enforceability of emergency arbitration decisions.
