Summary Dispositions in International Arbitration – an important tool or just going through the (dispositive) motions?
Dispositive motions, common practice in the United States, are gaining traction in the wider international arbitration community, making their way into several different global institutional rules. They are, however, less commonly used in civil law jurisdictions.
Summary or dispositive proceedings are often promoted as tools to accelerate the resolution of a claim, promote efficiency, and conserve judicial resources. Despite these goals, do they live up to their extolled virtues in practice?
Join Reed Smith global presenters and our star-studded panel of guest speakers gathered from near and far for a lively discussion exploring the value and efficiency of dispositive motions – covering the good, the bad, and the ugly – and looking at example case studies that may or may not benefit from dispositive motions. The discussion will also examine the ongoing debate on whether dispositive motions could violate the New York Convention’s presentment clause.
