Liability of arbitrators and arbitration institutes vis-à-vis parties – a roundtable discussion What if arbitrators or arbitration institutions are perceived as having breached their obligations towards the parties? At this event, a multinational panel will share its views and insights on whether arbitrators and arbitration institutes can be held liable vis-à-vis parties.
