A growing trend in international arbitrations (IA) has led to a record-setting caseload over the past year. Driven by the restrictions imposed by the pandemic and the nature of the proceedings that make virtual hearings well-suited, international arbitrations have quickly become a preferred method for resolving cross-border commercial disputes. In the future, international arbitrations are also likely to continue to be favored as a “greener” and more efficient alternative to achieve a settlement.
For decades, DOAR has supported arbitration hearings worldwide, including in Hong Kong, Toronto, London, Paris, Singapore, Mexico City, Moscow, and Copenhagen. In 2020, DOAR worked closely with the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to support the first remote hearings for both institutions.
DOAR understands and can cater to the uniqueness of international arbitrations, whether in-person or virtually. No matter the format, you can count on DOAR to be in lockstep with counsel and in control of the required technology.
