Todd Wetmore will be speaking on the “Top 10 Tips on How to Make an Award Work: Lessons from the ICC Scrutiny Process” panel, hosted by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) as part of New York Arbitration Week.

The panellists will put forward ten practical tips on how best to avoid recurrent shortcomings and improve the quality and enforceability of awards, based on frequent points brought to the attention of arbitral tribunals by the ICC Court during the scrutiny of draft arbitral awards.

The interactive roundtable discussion will feature examples of comments from the ICC Court, of which Todd is a Vice-President, exploring a broad range of issues, such as non-participating parties, awards by consent, dissenting opinions, iura novit curia, interest and costs, the assessment of witness and expert evidence, drafting the dispositive section of awards, and the failure to address certain claims raised by the parties or addressing claims not raised by the parties.

The session will take place today at 12:45pm ET (GMT – 5).
