Three Crowns partner Shaparak Saleh and associate Etienne Vimal du Monteil have co-authored the “Awards: Challenges” chapter in the third edition of Global Arbitration Review’s The Guide to Challenging and Enforcing Arbitration Awards.

The chapter addresses the methods available to a party who wishes to challenge an international arbitral award. In this context, the authors consider the review of the award by the arbitral tribunal (i.e., correction, interpretation, supplementation, revision and remission), the internal review mechanism provided for in certain arbitration rules, as well as the judicial review of the award by national courts.
