Time for Costs Budgeting in International Arbitration?April 25, 2017
O’Melveny’s Margarita Nikki Michael authored an article for Law360 titled, “Time For Costs Budgeting In International Arbitration?” The piece, published April 25, 2017, discusses the introduction of costs budgeting to English litigation as part of a new case management regime and possible implications for international arbitration.
In the article, Michael explores the question, “With the costs in international arbitration becoming notoriously high and third-party funding increasingly being offered as an available source of funding matters subject to arbitration, is it not just a matter of time before users begin to demand a similar cost management tool in arbitration?”
London counsel Michael focuses on international arbitration and business trial and litigation.
