Articles on Arbitration

“Any grouping of professionals which becomes exclusive will tend to operate…against the arrival of new persons into its ranks – in the case of arbitration against the arrival into its ranks of new arbitrators…with new ideas and fresh approaches. Ultimately, this limits the choice of the [users of arbitration]…Not only is it in the interests of all parties,….whom international arbitrators serve, not to have barriers which limit choice but also…it is positively good…..to have new arbitrators…with new methods…to help the arbitration process to be more expeditious and less costly.”
