10 Jan: “Irrituale” corporate arbitration *

“Irrituale” corporate arbitration * Italian law provides for two different kinds of arbitration proceedings: on the one hand, ‘regular’ (‘rituale’) arbitration, resulting in an enforceable award; on the other hand, ‘irrituale’ arbitration, whose award has the effect of a binding contract.   The rules governing ‘irrituale’ arbitration, particularly ‘irrituale’ arbitration in corporate matters, present several gaps and inconsistencies.  Nonetheless, it is a phenomenon of undeniable practical relevance. Indeed, about a quarter of the Italian companies articles of association containing an arbitration clause providing for ‘irrituale’ arbitration (as found by Assonime’s study no. 5/2017, L’arbitrato societario nella prospettiva delle imprese: in…

Un arbitrato solitamente viene promosso perché era previsto, sin dall’inizio del rapporto tra le parti, che le eventuali controversie sarebbero state sottratte alla cognizione del Giudice statuale. Rara è invece la conclusione di compromessi, ossia di patti arbitrali conclusi a controversia già insorta. Roberto evidenzia come, nella situazione di emergenza coronavirus che stiamo vivendo, l’istituto del compromesso potrebbe consentire di assicurare la tutela dei diritti dei cittadini anche a Tribunali chiusi, come adesso sono chiusi, salvo…
