The Journal of Damages in International Arbitration (JDIA) is focused squarely on the complex issues that arise in assessing damages and compensation in the context of international arbitration. Such issues arise, for example, in contractual disputes between commercial parties, where prior decisions in relevant courts may provide some guidance. In other cases, such as the emerging field of investment treaty arbitration, claims and remedies may vary widely from one matter to the next, providing the practitioner, client, and arbitral tribunal with scant guidance.
JDIA helps to shed light on these difficult issues by providing the perspectives of experienced damages experts, practitioners, and arbitrators on how to evaluate, analyze, quantify, and ultimately determine the amount of compensation to award. It provides a forum in which these complicated issues can be discussed and evaluated free from the setting of an adversarial proceeding.
Many arbitration practitioners consider damages the most important – and least understood – area in arbitration. As a result, clients are left to speculate about what damages they may recover or be faced with, and counsel are less able to advise their clients in a way that closely aligns client expectations with outcomes.
A subscription to JDIA helps practitioners stay up-to-date regarding damages issues and awards. This, in turn, allows them to better advise clients regarding potential recoveries and, in general, be better advocates on quantum issues. JDIA helps clients avoid unpleasant surprises by keeping them abreast of damage theories and awards, and for tribunals, it serves as an independent sounding board for discussion of many of the thorny issues they face in deciding quantum matters.
