VIArb would like to share a Podcast of Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC).
HKIAC is excited to launch the HKIAC Snapshot Series. This is a series of short podcasts focusing on key, and often underexplored, issues in arbitration practice.
The first snapshot covers the role of experts. Occasionally arbitral institutions are requested to appoint experts in international arbitrations or assist tribunals and parties in that process. Sarah Grimmer, Secretary-General at HKIAC (Moderator), Thomas Walsh, Partner at Clifford Chance; HKIAC Council and Proceedings Committee Member, and Mustafa Hadi, Managing Director at Berkeley Research Group; HKIAC Finance & Administration Committee Member explore the role of institutions in the appointment of experts with a focus on HKIAC’s experience.
The speakers discuss the benefits and disadvantages of experts being appointed by an institution or the arbitral tribunal as opposed to by the disputing parties, as well as the use of expert determination processes within an arbitration to facilitate resolution. These topics will be explored from the perspectives of the parties, the tribunal, and the institution.
