Preferences as an arbitrator

IBA Guidelines
IBA Rules or Prague Rules-based approach depending on the nature and amount of dispute and the parties' views
printed submission and electronic exhibits
Bockstiegel method (allocating an equal amount of time to each party with their freedom to use it as they wish between opening, examinations and closing)
Maximum deference to the right to present the party’s case
Rigorous control of the process by the tribunal
If it is a legal issue or an important factual issue
Where the parties would like to explore the possibility of settlement, the arbitrators should assist them by procedural means but should not take initiative in this regard
