Members of Int Arb Arbitrators & Mediators have successfully hosted multi-party and multi-day hearings and mediations, across multiple time zones and in different languages using consecutive and/or simultaneous interpretation.
Each arbitrator and mediator is confident your dispute can operate no different to the way it would in person. Their preferred platform is IAC Online which replicates a real life arbitration/mediation.
IAC Online offers A Grade security, an allocated technician, testing and training in advance with each participant, physically separated breakout rooms and a streamlined hearing/mediatiom room focused on the lead speakers.
Our Arbitrators have witnessed first-hand how an online arbitration should be conducted. They are familiar working with third party providers such as OPUS 2 and EPIQ who provide the E-bundles and live transcript. They have accommodated early starts and late night finishes. Physically separated breakout rooms have also proved useful particularly for three party tribunals as it provides the opportunity to discuss the topics face to face but ensuring complete privacy away from the parties and platform providers.

Top Tips to think about for your proceeding.

- Decide/Engage a third party transcription company if required.
- Appoint a third party evidence projection officer to take care of the documents/bundles throughout

- Ensure each participant has the correct equipment (i.e. Wifi, camera, microphone)
