Arbitration - Elastic or Arthritic? (Peter Rees QC - Asian Dispute Review)

In this article, Peter Rees QC discusses a number of ways in which arbitration has failed to live up to its promises of, in particular, speed, flexibility and low cost. With specific reference to disclosure of documents and expert evidence, he argues for greater procedural 'elasticity' to overcome 'arthritic' arbitration.
