TCAS: Disclosure – What is Reasonable or Appropriate?
The required level of proper disclosure by arbitrators has come under heightened scrutiny in recent years with concerns over multiple appointments from the same firms or parties, as well as so-called double-hatting. Cases such as Haliburton v Chubb in the UK and Aroma v Aroma in Ontario have put so-called standard practices into question. The panel will discuss the current state of play in different jurisdictions and what efforts are underway to establish new guidelines for all concerned.
