Few clients seek arbitration counsel as often as those in telecoms, or have such high stakes disputes when they do. And yet, to date, there has been no definitive book for either counsel or client on this fascinating genre of work.

GAR’s The Guide to Telecoms Arbitrations aims to change that. Written by some of the world’s leading names, it covers the most pressing conceptual and practical aspects of telecoms arbitrations, from questions of arbitrability to topics such as the idiosyncrasies of space and satellite disputes, problems of performance caused by sanctions regimes, and how to deal with armed conflict. It concludes with a series of regional overviews.
