NEWS & PRESS

Catherine Rogers to deliver update on Arbitrator Intelligence at Workshop co-hosted by UNCITRAL, Ministry of Justice of Japan and JIDRC

Founder and CEO Catherine Rogers has been invited to deliver an ‘Update on Arbitrator Intelligence’ at the forthcoming 'Dispute Resolution in the Digital Economy' Workshop, featuring Japan's Proposal on Stocktaking of Dispute Resolution in the Modern Context.

The Presiding Arbitrator and Co-Arbitrator of the Year

What is perhaps the greatest source of praise for an arbitrator? A party or lawyer who believes that they lost the case, but has positive things to say about that arbitrator. That is the criteria Arbitrator Intelligence started with to select its Arbitrators of the Year for 2020 and other Distinguished Arbitrators.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

“Arbitrator Intelligence is a welcomed innovation in the world of international arbitration. As a decision-support tool, it offers better prospects and brings more certainty and wisdom to the process of selection of arbitrators.”

Mohamed S. Abdel Wahab, Head of International Arbitration, Zulficar & Partners Law Firm

“Because many arbitrations in Peru involve Government entities, the Lima Chamber of Commerce has a heightened need to protect against corruption; feedback from Arbitrator Intelligence helps us promote transparency and integrity in our arbitrations.”

Rosa Bueno, Immediate Past President of the Lima Chamber of Commerce; Founding Partner, BuenoLercari Consultores

“Arbitrator Intelligence Reports are a technological and informational upgrade to make arbitrator appointments more predictable and the arbitral process even more effective.”

Gary B. Born, President of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre; Chair of the International Arbitration Practice Group, Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale & Dorr LLP

“Arbitrator Intelligence Reports make it easier for users to identify qualified new arbitrators and will make it easier to identify and appoint newer and more diverse arbitrators.”

Gabrielle Kaufmann-Kohler, President of the Council of the Centre for International Dispute Settlement; Partner, Lévy Kaufman-Kohler

“This work of data collection, evaluation and dissemination is critical to the overdue integration of Africa’s highly qualified and experienced leading arbitrators in the rarified universe of international commercial arbitration. Confidence in this international system cannot be sustained in a new world without diversity and inclusion.”

C. Adeyemi Candide-Johnson, Immediate Past President of the Lagos Court of Arbitration; Senior Partner, Strachan Partners

“Arbitrator Intelligence Reports offer insights about new arbitrators who may not otherwise be known. More choice will not only enhance diversity but also raise the bar for arbitrators as a whole.”

Chiann Bao, Vice President of the ICC Court of Arbitration and Chair of the ICC Commission Task Force on Arbitration and ADR; Independent Arbitrator, Arbitration Chambers (Hong Kong/London)
