This is the third post in a five-part series on the top 5 international business law trends to watch out for in 2013.
The third big story to look for in 2013 is the continued growth in international arbitration particularly in in the area of investment treaty arbitration.
The preference of many international companies to forgo litigation in favor of international arbitration to resolve disputes is a wise choice.
Rather than engage in multiple international suits over the same matter and risk divergent outcomes, a company doing business internationally can resolve its disputes through international arbitration, ensuring conformity of laws, issues and resolution.
Trend to Watch: Look for the number of international arbitrations to increase, particularly in the area of investment treaty arbitration.
