Emergency and interim relief are vastly underutilized tools that can assist in compelling arbitration, maintaining the status quo, preventing destruction and compelling production of evidence, and preserving assets. Issues on obtaining and enforcing such relief abound.
Should emergency and interim relief be sought from a court or a tribunal, and do emergency arbitrator procedures preclude a court from granting emergency relief? What steps must be followed and what circumstances justify such relief? What are the consequences if an emergency or interim order is improperly granted, and what security can be required to mitigate those consequences? How can such an order be effectively enforced?
This panel of U.S. and international counsel and arbitrators will address these issues and provide creative approaches to enhance the ability of new and seasoned practitioners to take full advantage of the availability of emergency and interim relief.
