Christophe Dugué is the author of the Chapter France of Global Legal Insight International Arbitration 2021

Since the 2nd edition published in 2016, Christophe Dugué is the author of the Chapter France of GLI’s International Arbitration book:

  • This chapter provides a quick overview of the main provisions of French law on arbitration (i.e., the Decree No. 2011-48 of 13 January 2011 which entered into force on 1 May 2011 with a focus on international arbitration, and some of the significant judicial decision made by the French Cour de Cassation and the Paris Court of Appeal.
  • Key issues include notably the importance of the seat of the arbitration and the favourable arbitration regime deriving from French law and the decisions of French courts, which explains why Paris is one of the preferred seats for international arbitration.
  • The chapter also explains the economic criterion which is used to determine when an arbitration is international.
  • Other topics include the arbitration agreement, the determination of what disputes are arbitrable, the principle of competence-competence, the principle of autonomy of the arbitration agreement, the main features of the arbitration procedure and procedural rules (due process, evidence, confidentiality, diligence and good faith), and developments dedicated to the arbitrators, interim relief, the making of the award, the effects of the award, the challenge and enforcement of the award, and investment arbitration.
