Allegations of corruption are becoming commonplace in international arbitration cases. What happens if one party argues that the underlying contract has been procured by bribery? Which party bears the burden of proving (or disproving) corruption? How should the Tribunal assess these allegations? Ultimately, if the case of corruption is made out, how does this affect the merits of the case?
We are pleased to present to you a distinguished panel of experts who will share their insight and recent experience at Arbitration Association 40 seminar "Bribery and corruption: addressing the wrong in arbitration".
