YCAP – Costs Report: DOs and DON’Ts in Cost Awards

Costs are often overlooked but of critical importance to the outcome of an arbitration. This session will highlight the results of the 2021 – 2023 YCAP/Secretariat Costs Survey.

Presenters: Donny Surtani, Chris Milburn and Inkoo Lee

Next, a panel discussion will shine light on different perspectives and key issues:

  • What process should be followed to determine costs, and when?
  • What should counsel include in costs submissions?
  • What should arbitrators include in the costs award?
  • Should costs be adjusted for inefficient or uncooperative conduct of the case?
  • What about significant unexplained differences between the parties in legal expenses? 

Panelists: Stephanie CohenHugh Meighen, Geoff Moysa and Paul Di Pietro

Moderator: Ekin Cinar

This session will be free to all YCAP members
