Annual International Conference Med-Mid XIV organized by The European Court of Arbitration, the European Center for Arbitration and Mediation (CEAM) and the International School of Arbitration and Mediation for Europe, the Mediterranean and the Middle East, was held on October 26 over a Zoom Meeting. The conference focused on the burden of proof on international arbitration.

Our Founder and Senior Partner Prof. Dr. H. Ercüment Erdem made a presentation on disclosure of documents from a civil law point of view as well as the effects of voluntary production of documents, forced discovery and its limits.

In his presentation, Prof. Erdem explained the procedure applicable to international arbitration, applicable laws setting forth the arbitration procedure with a comparative approach between different civil law jurisdictions, Turkey, Switzerland, France and Germany. He also tackled the question on the limits of the arbitral tribunal’s powers and how the courts assist arbitration with regards to document production and the consequences in case of noncompliance.

Prof. Erdem’s presentation will be published in the Med-Mid Arbitration and Mediation Reports by the European Court of Arbitration in the upcoming months.
