Gary Born, one of the world’s preeminent authorities on international commercial arbitration and international litigation, has published the third edition of his classic International Arbitration and Forum Selection Agreements: Drafting and Enforcing (Kluwer 3d ed. 2010). The book, a Wolters Kluwer publication, is a concise, practical primer on the fundamentals of drafting and enforcing international arbitration agreements and other dispute resolution clauses. Drawing on a wealth of practical experience and academic analysis, this extensively revised and expanded third edition offers model arbitration and forum selection clauses for international contracts and explains the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches. The book contains nearly 200 model arbitration or forum selection clauses, or provisions for inclusion in such clauses, together with extensive and practical commentary on the benefits and costs of such provisions.
His latest primer is an essential resource for any international practitioner or corporate counsel engaged in international matters. Among its advance reviews are comments from most leading international arbitral institutions:
