The terms “Guerrilla Tactics” have been difficult to define but prominent arbitrator Michael Moser described them as “unusual, unconventional tactics designed to delay and obstruct proceedings.”  In a recent survey, 68% of respondents reported that they experienced what they believed were guerrilla tactics in international arbitration.   Come join our distinguished and diverse panel of Thai and international arbitrators and lawyers focusing on practical examples and tips to overcome them.
