  ICC Model Contract - Joint Venture
  ICC Pub No: 780E, 2017 Edition
  Available:  Mid January 2018
  In complex transactions, international as well as national co-operation between companies require solid and balanced terms and conditions. ICC has prepared this Joint Venture Model Contract for use by small, medium-sized or large companies in order to provide them with a unique, balanced platform that is fair to all parties.

The model allows for a solid decision-making process, a clear allocation of participation and provision of resources, the need for swift and effective dispute resolution, and the need for complete and informed allocation of risks.

It includes a USB key which contains the full text of the model and its annexes, permitting you to easily adapt the contract to your specific case. If parties have no need to draw up a special contract of their own, they can use the entire model.
  Business Guide to Trade and Investment Volume 1 - International Trade
  ICC Pub No: 781E, 2017 Edition
  Volume 1 of this series introduces business interests to the international and regional rules applicable to trade in goods and services, as well as to aspects of trade such as intellectual property rights and dispute settlement. Businesses that have an understanding of the history of the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) will find it easier to appreciate how they can benefit economically from the international trade regime.

The book also includes case studies showing how particular industries have used the rules to open foreign markets or to protect themselves from injurious imports.

The authors have worked hard to simplify the complex and technical subjects of trade and investment to make them more accessible. Technical subjects have been broken down into readily understandable language. Business guidance is provided in the form of Shaded Tip Boxes, as well as legal details in Text Boxes.

  Expedited Procedures in International Arbitration - Dossier XVI
  ICC Product No. 789E, 2017 Edition
  The amended ICC Rules of Arbitration entered into force on 1 March 2017. They include an ICC expedited procedure automatically applicable to cases with an amount in dispute below USD 2 million unless expressly excluded by the parties.

This Dossier XVI of the ICC Institute of World Business Law explores some of the ways and means to conduct proceedings in a reasonable time without jeopardising due process.

Expedited arbitral procedures are not new and already exist in areas such as domain name and sports disputes. Readers will explore in detail what experience has taught us in these two fields.

The book also looks at the specific issue of summary judgement and the enforcement of such decisions. Looking back through history, the authors consider what we can learn from the past with a view to the future.

This Dossier will help arbitrators, counsel and parties to properly address the challenge of reducing the duration and cost of arbitration proceedings.
