Abstract

There has been a recent uptick in challenges to arbitrators in investment treaty arbitrations. When negotiating an arbitration agreement and/or selecting a forum to commence international arbitration, challenge procedures and the applicable standards should be taken into consideration to preserve potential strategic advantages. This article undertakes a comparative law analysis of the various standards for challenging an arbitrator and then examines some of these recent decisions.
