TOPIC: Ethics in International Arbitration: Traps for the Unwary

Attorneys in the U.S. who are new to international arbitration may be unaware of how ethical rules in foreign jurisdictions affect their conduct. It may not be easy to ascertain what ethical rules govern in a proceeding, or what happens if there are conflicting ethical rules. Because of the many areas where different legal and cultural backgrounds may cause clashes in ethical rules, attorneys need to take steps to ensure that they are familiar with their obligations in any new setting.
