Litigation and Arbitration

One of the most often asked questions by clients is which arbitration institution is best to administer an arbitration? While many may have a favourite or go-to institution, it is generally not desirable to recommend one particular institution. The choice of institution will have to be made in the light of the particular circumstances of the case. Much will depend on the reputation and the level of personal experience with an institution. Whatever degree of objective analysis is applied, it is inevitable that an element of subjective (even emotional) analysis will also come in to play in selecting or rejecting a proposed arbitral institution.   
On May 2, 2019, Title III of the Helms-Burton Act came into force, governing the possibility for U.S. citizens affected by the expropriation of properties due to the Cuban revolutionary process to take legal action to claim compensation from the people who traffic in them. The U.S. International Claims Settlement Registry has identified some 6,000 potential claims. In this scenario, it is key to know the duties of information and relationship with the European Union that can be demanded of the addressees of such claims; as well as to plan in advance the reactive judicial measures that may be initiated in the EU to neutralize or mitigate the effects that these procedures may have for individuals and companies from the EU Member States.
