The acclaimed international arbitration lawyer has co-authored a new article outlining the benefits of the international commercial arbitration process.
Zuko Nonxuba, a renowned international arbitration lawyer based out of South Africa, recently consulted in the composition of a newly published essay exploring the finer points of his chosen area of legal expertise. The article, which is titled Zuko Nonxuba Discusses Advantages of International Commercial Arbitration, was written in conjunction with the editorial staff of an online periodical that concentrates on matters of business, commerce, and entrepreneurship, was published on November 10, 2022.
To begin the article, Zuko underscores the inherent flexibility of the international commercial arbitration process. “The flexibility of arbitration allows the parties to tailor the rules and procedures of the arbitral proceeding to fit their needs. For example, the parties can agree on the language(s) to be used in the arbitral proceedings, the number of arbitrators, and whether or not to take evidence orally or in writing,” he states, before elaborating that “some arbitral institutions, such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), have their own rules that the parties can choose to adopt.”
In another section of the essay, Zuko Nonxuba highlights the confidential nature of arbitration, writing, “Arbitral proceedings are generally confidential. The information disclosed during the proceedings is not public unless both parties agree otherwise. In contrast, court proceedings are open to the public. Regarding international disputes, confidentiality is often essential for parties that do not want sensitive information about their businesses made public.”
Upon the article’s debut, Zuko Nonxuba made the following remarks: “When I was approached to consult on the crafting of this piece, I agreed immediately. I think more people need to know about the benefits of international commercial arbitration, especially when compared to the alternatives. Hopefully, the publication of this article will help to accomplish that.”
