Free guide explores arbitration in Dublin
A free concise guide to arbitration in Dublin has been published by Arbitration Ireland.
A Concise Guide to Arbitration in Dublin provides the essentials for anyone participating in an arbitration in Dublin, from the basis of the arbitration agreement, the appointment of arbitrators, to the making, challenging and enforcement of the award.
The text includes a synopsis of decisions under the Arbitration Act 2010, a summary of the Commercial Court in Ireland and considers the role of Ireland’s designated arbitration judge in addition to general guidance on Irish contract law.
It includes contributions from Michael M Collins SC, Klaus Reichert SC, Colm Ó hOisín SC, Patrick Mair, Nathy Dunleavy, Sinead Drinan, Hayley O’Donnell, Hannah Godfrey and Cian McGoldrick, among others.
Writing in the foreword, High Court president Mr Justice David Barniville said: “I offer my strong encouragement to, and support for, Arbitration Ireland and all involved in the business of international arbitration in Ireland in their ongoing efforts to promote Dublin as a venue and seat for international arbitrations as well as the considerable skills and experience of Irish arbitrators and other practitioners and professionals in the field of international arbitration in Ireland.
“The work of Arbitration Ireland and others in this area complements and dovetails nicely with the wider initiative to promote Ireland as a global centre for international dispute resolution which is supported by the Irish government and by the Irish judiciary as well as by both branches of the legal profession in Ireland and their respective professional bodies and other professionals involved in dispute resolution.”
