As globalisation continues at a rapid pace and companies expand into new regions, the threat of conflict grows. Offering greater predictability, reduced costs, and shorter timeframes, arbitration is becoming a preferred method of resolving cross-border disputes. New ICC rules aim to make procedures even more time and cost efficient. However, as the balance of commercial transactions continues to shift to countries with less established and less efficient enforcement regimes, parties to international disputes must focus on the enforcement of awards at an earlier stage, and be aware that emerging jurisdictions may present unique, unexpected challenges.
