Companies deciding to submit international distribution-related disputes (including agency and franchising agreements) to arbitration often face the problem of identifying arbitrators having a specific experience in that field. Moreover, in some cases, the amount at stake does not seem high enough to justify the recourse to international arbitration. The International Distribution Institute (IDI), the Swiss Chambers’ Arbitration Institution (SCAI) and the Geneva Chamber of Commerce (CCIG) have created a new tool to help companies facing these situations, by providing them with a list of arbitrators with specific experience in distribution and a tailor-made expedited procedure recommended for distribution disputes. This conference will focus on giving in-house counsel who are drafting specific distribution contracts and managing distribution-related disputes the opportunity to ask questions, share concerns and discuss the proposals made by the IDI and SCAI teams.
