Thomas Bevilacqua and Ivan Urzhumov Author Chapter on Arbitration Law and Practice in France
July 2, 2012
Partner Thomas Bevilacqua and associate Ivan Urzhumov both in Foley Hoag LLP's International Litigation and Arbitration Practice, recently authored a chapter on arbitration law and practice in France for the Practical Law Company (PLC).
Presented as a comprehensive Q&A guide, the chapter provides a structured overview of the key governing legal principles and practical issues applicable in this leading arbitration venue, addressing, among other subjects, the different mandatory provisions and default rules applicable under French law, the role of French courts in aid of arbitration, commonly adopted procedural techniques in France-based arbitration, and obtaining or resisting the recognition and enforcement of international arbitration awards in France.
"With significant coverage of the new 2011 French law on arbitration, the latest caselaw and the trends observed in the practice of institutional and ad hoc international arbitration in France, this chapter is a useful starting and ending point for finding answers to questions about many of the facets of arbitrating in France," Bevilacqua said.
