The following Arbitration practice note Produced in partnership with Richard Allen and Leng Sun Chan SC of Baker McKenzie provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Investment treaty arbitrations may be brought under the rules of many different institutions or ad hoc arbitration rules. Each institution or body has its own unique rules and associated collection of risks and benefits. The table below provides a quick reference guide for the investment arbitration rules of several key institutions, ie the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC), the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), China International Economic Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC) and the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA).
This is a high-level guide intended to provide an overview of the similarities and differences among some of the major institutional and ad hoc international arbitration rules. It is not intended as a substitute for detailed legal advice as to the procedures and laws which govern a particular dispute. Advice should be sought when agreeing to arbitration and at an early stage of any dispute.
