Tribunals and claimants are increasingly likely to encounter issues related to non-participating respondents in international arbitrations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. How to proceed with an arbitration when a respondent refuses to participate? How do the competing interests and rights of claimants and non-participating respondents influence the arbitral process? Is there any best practice for claimants and tribunals on how to deal with the non-participation of respondents? These and other issues will be discussed by Courtney Furner and Florian Loibl in the interactive webinar organized by DIS40 Munich. The session will be moderated by Nathalie Lengert and followed by an online get-together.
