Arbitration classics: A Tale of Two Cities

A Tale of Two Cities: virtual arbitration in the best of times, the worst of times

During the current time of the Covid-19 global pandemic we have already seen the legal industry swiftly react and adapt to new ways of working. In this first edition of Arbitration Classics we introduce the theme of virtual arbitrations.

Can cross examinations be conducted successfully via video link? Are varying styles in different legal cultures taken into consideration or could some tribunals be alienated?

In our round up, you will find the following short pieces from three different perspectives:

  • Clare Ambrose addresses questions around virtual arbitral hearings from her chair as an arbitrator in her Q&A piece originally published for Lexis®PSL.
  • Sara Masters QC speaks from the angle of counsel on arbitral appeals and applications in a Q&A, also published for Lexis®PSL.
  • Josephine Davies gives her personal account, as counsel, of a recent arbitration conducted partly virtually due to Covid-19.
