This book will be an essential reference guide on evidence for practitioners of international arbitration. Filled with examples drawn from arbitration case precedent, the book considers common issues and questions relating to evidentiary procedure. Arbitrators and counsel will gain from this publication a better view of the best practices, accepted solutions to difficult procedural issues, and fundamental due process considerations which arise in connection with the use of evidence in international arbitration.


"… this work, from a critique of the IBA Rules (and consideration of certain UNCITRAL Rules), provides a highly interesting and well-researched international perspective on evidence in "international" arbitrations and will be a valuable new reference source." - Ian Gaunt for The London Maritime Arbitrators Association Newsletter (2012)

The book’s two key strengths are its practicality and the depth of the research. This is a book written by a hands-on practitioner, not an academic. It focuses on what really happens in arbitrations, without spending too much time on policy-level considerations as to why it is so. A good example is the book’s consideration of Article 3.3 of the IBA Rules. - Matthew Secomb, White & Case LLP, Paris, for The Paris Journal of International Arbitration (2013)
