Choosing Wisely: The Challenge of Interim Measures in International Arbitration
Program Hosts: NYIAC & CIArb-NY

This session is a collaboration of the New York Arbitration Week 2022 Co-Hosts, the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators New York Branch (CIArbNY) and the New York International Arbitration Center (NYIAC).

Courts and arbitral tribunals generally have concurrent jurisdiction to consider applications for interim measures in aid of arbitration. Parties and their counsel have to make important strategic choices about where to seek interim relief. This program will present two mock hearings in connection with applications for interim measures in a pending international arbitration seated in New York. One team of advocates will seek a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction before a United States district court judge, while the other will seek similar relief before an emergency arbitrator. A discussion will follow examining the consequences of the choices made and the issues that should be considered by parties and their counsel before making these decisions.
