"Behind the somewhat misleading title of this book lies a true gem. Far from the being a nuts and bolts guide to international arbitration based on bare lists of features, facts, tips and traps, this is a handy practitioner’s compendium of sage advice on critical aspects of international arbitration at all its stages. It is also a companion for the practitioner, both experienced and novice alike. .... Of special interest, given the potential pitfalls and pratfalls that can trap the inexperienced, unwary and unaware, are dedicated chapters on cultural factors, whether to choose arbitration and how to choose it. .... Despite the fact that the book is the product of 25 individual contributors from diverse legal traditions and cultural and linguistic backgrounds, it is a remarkably coherent and integrated work. The editors are to be congratulated for achieving such consistency of approach, depth and treatment. This book should therefore be close to the hearts of all practitioners, both old hands and neophytes."

"The format is easy to follow and the editors have managed to put together a thorough and concise publication that will provide the novice or expert alike with the latest information and the answers to many of the complex questions and issues that are raised in international commercial arbitration today. I highly recommend International Arbitration Checklists."
- Luis M. Martinez, Esq. Vice President, International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) of the American Arbitration Association (AAA)
"International Arbitration Checklists is a gem. It deconstructs every major aspect of international arbitration, meticulously analyzing the key issues in a compact, user-friendly form."

"International Arbitration Checklists is a very useful desktop reference. The authors, international practitioners and arbitrators, have carefully considered each stage of the arbitration process -- from the moment the dispute arises to the enforcement of the award -- and have identified the questions that commonly arise. The thoughtful discussions that follow the checklists reflect the extensive experience of the authors, and deal not only with legal and procedural questions but also with the matters of ethics, language and culture that are often encountered in international proceedings. The appendix helpfully reproduces in one place the texts of the New York Convention, a list of contracting states, and the most frequently used ad hoc and institutional rules."
