    Year in Review 2020 | What the draft International Arbitration Rules means for arbitrating parties

    Year in Review 2020 | What the draft International Arbitration Rules means for arbitrating parties

    In 2017 South Africa adopted a new arbitration law for International Arbitrations, the International Arbitration Act (IAA). The passing of the IAA was a significant development for both South Africa and the region. Many parties choose arbitration in their international agreements; however, this is only desirable if an arbitration is seated in a jurisdiction where courts give support when needed, but otherwise do not interfere. The IAA which is based on the UNCITRAL Model Law entrenches this approach. The IAA provides a familiar framework for administering an arbitration, clarity of process and procedure, and certainty that foreign arbitration agreements and awards will be recognised and enforced within the jurisdiction.

    However, a good arbitration law and the associated developed judiciary and infrastructure is only one side of the equation. What is also required is a set of modern arbitral rules, which are familiar to international parties and which can accommodate and facilities modern international arbitrations. The Arbitration Foundation of Southern Africa (AFSA) has now published their draft International Arbitration Rules, which will hopefully plug this gap and provide a set of user friendly and modern rules.

    In this podcast, Partner Alon Meyerov and advocate Grant Herholdt, a barrister who practices at Group One Chambers in South Africa will be discussing the draft International Arbitration Rules published by the Arbitration Foundation of Southern Africa.

    Year in Review 2020 | How the renewable energy sector will be an engine to reactivate Spain's economy

    Year in Review 2020 | How the renewable energy sector will be an engine to reactivate Spain's economy

    The renewables sector has been identified as one of the main catalysts for the reactivation of the Spanish economy after the coronavirus pandemic. Within this context, the Spanish Government launched a Transformation, Recovery and Resilience Plan to promote an ecological transition with a greater focused being placed on the use of renewable energy. As such, new regulations were enacted during 2020, that focused, for example, regulating renewable energy generation facilities and structuring a new renewable energy auction system.

    With the above in mind, this podcast features Socio Luis García and Associate Marina Arancón discussing how the renewables sector will function as a re-activation tool for Spain's economy.

    Year in Review 2020 | The recovery forecast for Spain's construction sector after COVID-19

    This year, against the backdrop of COVID-19, the impact of the coronavirus crisis on the construction sector in Spain and its recovery forecast will undoubtedly be questioned. The Spanish construction sector has operated with major restrictions that have been higher than those of many other European countries throughout 2020. However, we can now expect to see a continuation of work that was halted and an increased pick-up of the development of infrastructure projects.

    In this podcast, Socio Luis García and Associate Marina Arancón explore the present status and the future forecasts of the construction sector in Spain, taking into consideration the fact that much of the focus in Spain will be on its recovery in 2021.
