We are delighted to announce the publication of the 2nd Edition of Pleading in Arbitration: A Practitioner’s Guide, just published by Sweet & Maxwell/W Green & Sons.
The second edition co-authored by Iain K Clark, Solicitor Advocate, Partner and Head of Litigation & Dispute Resolution at Gilson Gray LLP and Steven Walker QC, is an essential guide to international arbitration. It is designed to provide both new and experienced arbitration practitioners (including Solicitors, Advocates, Barristers, In-house Counsel, Commercial Directors, Contracts Managers, Students and Arbitrators) with a practical step-by-step guide, outlining the various procedural stages, from start to finish, of an arbitration.
Steven Walker QC explained the need for such a text in the ever changing landscape of international arbitration:
“The world is a global marketplace as never before and international arbitration is the best and most effective way to protect transnational investments. It is essential for those engaged in international business to understand the arbitration tools and how best to use them.”
Currency is absolutely key to this work, and co-author Iain K Clark, Solicitor Advocate, Partner and Head of Litigation & Dispute Resolution at Gilson Gray LLP said of the new additions to the 2nd edition of the book:
“We are delighted to have the 2nd edition published. We have fully updated the text to take account of various new International Arbitration Rules and appreciate contributions from a number of leading international arbitration practitioners worldwide, bringing some additional perspectives on this exciting area of practice. We hope that this new edition will be welcomed as an essential guide on international arbitration.”
The new second edition is now available from selected bookshops and the publisher’s website.
