Freezing Those Costs: A Swedish-Romanian Dialogue on Controlling Arbitration Costs


Arbitration is the only practical method for resolving cross-border disputes arising from business contracts. It is also the preferred method for solving business disputes in general. As business transactions are becoming increasingly complex, dispute resolution is often perceived as too lengthy and too costly. As part of the general initiative for making arbitration more cost-efficient, this discussion reviews avenues to freeze the rising costs of arbitration.

The dialogue will examine various cost-cutting mechanisms available to the parties by drawing on the needs and experiences of Romanian practitioners using the SCC Arbitration Rules and Stockholm as good examples on how to achieve a streamlined and tailor-made resolution of international disputes.

The Swedish Arbitration Act and the SCC Arbitration Rules have recently been translated to Romanian for the benefit of enterprises and lawyers in Romania and will be presented to the audience.

The conference is ideal for corporate legal counsels, arbitration practitioners and business people who want to learn more about the efficient resolution of domestic and international business disputes. The program will be conducted in English.
