Financier Worldwide Magazine
With each passing year multinational firms spread their reach ever further into new sectors and jurisdictions. With this comes a corresponding rise in the incidence of disputes. For international organisations, disputes in overseas markets are often highly disruptive and resolving the conflict efficiently is a priority. The time and cost of litigation has made arbitration a popular option in recent years, and with certain jurisdictions making a concerted effort to improve their profile as a seat of arbitration, the choice of viable venues continues to increase. However, processes and outcomes can differ. As globalisation continues at pace, firms are operating in countries with less established and efficient dispute resolution regimes. Parties must therefore bear in mind that that such jurisdictions may harbour unexpected and unique challenges, and it may be beneficial to consider alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to address their particular issue.
