Constantine Partasides KC has co-authored the seventh edition of Redfern and Hunter on International Arbitration with Nigel Blackaby KC and Alan Redfern, published by Oxford University Press. The publication is the leading international authority on the law and practice of international arbitration and includes appendices on the major international rules of arbitration and conventions and model clauses for international contracts. It follows the chronology of an arbitration from the drafting of the arbitration agreement through to the enforcement of the arbitral award.

The new edition has been significantly revised and incorporates changes in many of the major arbitration rules and supporting guidelines, considers elements in the “soft law” of the leading arbitral institutions and of the International Bar Association, and analyses the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the practice of international arbitration.

Redfern and Hunter has been described as “an influential text” and “undoubtedly a must-have work in the library of any student, arbitrator or lawyer acting in international arbitration in any jurisdiction”.

In addition to this latest edition, Constantine has co-authored the previous three editions of Redfern and Hunter with his good friends Nigel Blackaby KC, Alan Redfern, and the late and much missed Professor Martin Hunter.
