This revised text provides a practical guide to the law relating to all aspects of costs in arbitration proceedings. The Arbitration Act 1996, has made significant changes to the law on arbitration costs. These have, among other things, made arbitrators responsible for the cost-effective management of cases, and given them new powers to help them achieve this. In its second edition, "Costs in Arbitration Proceedings" has been updated to include sections on: agreements as to costs; the arbitrator's power to limit costs; and forms and precedents. It sets out the law of costs for the parties and of the parties, the arbitrators' fees, taxation of costs, and security for costs, costs implications of offers of settlement and application to the court in repect of costs. It is suitable for professional arbitration lawyers and also for the new or lay arbitrator.
Michael O’Reilly specialises in alternative dispute resolution, and he regularly sits as an arbitrator.
