The ICC has made amendments to the Arbitration Rules which came into force as of 1 March 2017.  The most important aspect of these amendments is that it offers an expedited procedure providing for a streamlined arbitration with reduced scales of fees.

Alexander Fessas, Managing Counsel and incoming Secretary General of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, will speak at Baker McKenzie’s office in Washington DC on Thursday, May 11 about the newly revised ICC Arbitration Rules incorporating the Expedited Procedure Provisions.  Attendees will gain insight into the increased efficiency and transparency of ICC arbitration that the new rules offer.  Jonathan Greenblatt from Shearman & Sterling and Teddy Baldwin from Baker McKenzie will moderate the event.
