The German Arbitration Institute (DIS) revised its arbitration rules for the first time in 20 years. The DIS-rules apply to international and domestic arbitrations and become applicable 1 March 2018. The revised rules follow common global trends for greater efficiency and transparency in arbitration. Besides German disputes, the DIS has administered an increasing number of non-German disputes within recent years. In 25% of the proceedings, the language is English. In 34% of the cases at least one foreign party is involved. Baker McKenzie’s German International Arbitration Team will talk about all the important changes in a video podcast over the next two months, with a new video coming out twice a week.
