About this book:
The DIS Arbitration Rules is the first practical commentary on the 2018 DIS Arbitration Rules. The new rules of the German Arbitration Institute (DIS) entered into force on 1 March 2018. Drafted over an intense period of eighteen months by a committee of globally recognized experts with the active participation of nearly three hundred arbitration practitioners, the DIS Rules stand poised to attract parties seeking dispute resolution not only in Germany but also internationally. This extraordinary book, written by the drafters themselves, with a comprehensive article-by-article commentary, is filled with practical insights and recommendations regarding the application of the Rules. The book introduces important novelties and highlights changes to the 1998 Arbitration Rules, and it provides in-depth information on the purpose of each provision.

What’s in this book:
Each provision of the new Rules is given its own chapter, in which the following issues and topics are examined in depth for the specific rule under analysis:

  • use of the provision in practice;
  • modifications from the corresponding provision in the 1998 Rules;
  • relationship to the relevant sections of the German Code of Civil Procedure;
  • comparison with relevant regulations and practices in German State court proceedings;
  • detailed expert commentary, including analysis of case law and legal scholarship;
  • DIS practice concerning the application of the provision; and
  • comparison with similar provisions in other arbitration rules.

The annex section of the book includes an extensive collection of reference materials, including forms, schedule of costs and texts of various international arbitration documents.

The authors and editors have vast experience as counsel and arbitrators in proceedings conducted under the auspices of the DIS and other arbitral institutions. Their intimate familiarity with all aspects of DIS case administration is of immeasurable value to all stakeholders in arbitral proceedings.

How this will help you:
As a genuine user’s guide, this book explains how the new rules are likely to be applied in practice by the arbitral institution, arbitrators and parties. Its practical tips regarding the effective conduct of DIS arbitrations elucidate best practices for counsel and arbitrators and make DIS’s day-to-day case management and decision-making processes more transparent and predictable for users of all levels of experience and expertise. With its international outreach, this book will be easily accessible for practitioners and users of all kinds of levels of experience and expertise.
