The training featured a solid core of theory and a number of stimulating practical workshops. In this way, our attendees were able to gain valuable insight into the procedure and peculiarities of international dispute resolution under the SCC Rules.
A number of interesting legal issues were addressed in the training: the arbitrability of commercial disputes, multi-party arbitrations and procedural issues thereof, the process of appointment and removal of arbitrators, the problem of non-execution or improper execution of the arbitration award and the ways of solving it, with a focus on a range of available interim measures.
The participants particularly appreciated the role-play, which simulated a commercial dispute arising out of a shareholders’ agreement. The simulation involved cross-examination techniques and evidentiary matters.
Informative meetings with lawyers from international law firms with offices in Stockholm enabled the attendees to gather useful information about the field of international arbitration and to discuss with colleagues the most urgent and topical legal problems of the area, as well as to establish contacts for future business cooperation.
