From the Editors
Welcome to the 29th edition of Arbitration World, a publication from K&L Gates’ International Arbitration Group that highlights significant developments and issues in international and domestic arbitration for executives and in-house counsel with responsibility for dispute resolution.

In this edition, we are delighted to have a guest contribution from Colin Johnson (Head of International Arbitration, Forensic, Grant Thornton UK LLP) offering practical thoughts and perspectives on using and understanding financial models in international arbitration.  We look at a case in which the U.S. court refused to enforce an award issued in Taiwan and a contrasting case in which the U.S. federal court compelled arbitration.  We review a case involving the first application of res judicata in a NAFTA arbitration, and we look at recent changes to the Brussels Regulation on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments, and how they affect international arbitration.  We continue our series on protection standards for investors in international investment agreements with a look at compensation rights.  We report on the growth of disputes arising from pricing provisions in long-term gas and liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply contracts, we explore the ways in which art disputes may benefit from being submitted to arbitration, and we report on Dubai’s new Maritime Arbitration Centre.

We also provide our usual update on developments from around the globe in international arbitration and investment treaty arbitration.

We hope you find this edition of Arbitration World of interest and we welcome any feedback (e-mail ian.meredith@klgates.com or peter.morton@klgates.com).
