New IBA Guidelines of Party Representation international Arbitration

The International Bar Association ("IBA") recently released the "IBA Guidelines on Party Representation international Arbitration" ("Guidelines"). According to the preamble, the Guidelines are an attempt at normalizing the conduct of counsel relating to party representation in the face of the "diverse and potentially conflicting rules and norms" commonly found international arbitration. By adopting the Guidelines, parties subscribe to "the principle that party representatives should act with integrity and honesty and should not engage in activities designed to produce unnecessary delay or expense, including tactics aimed at obstructing the arbitration proceedings."
