Damages in International Arbitration under Complex Long-term Contracts

Herfried Wöss, Adriana San Román Rivera, Pablo Spiller, and Santiago Dellepiane

Oxford International Arbitration Series

  • The first detailed coverage of legal, financial, and economic implications of damages in international arbitration
  • Clarifies how different rules of law on damages and loss of income (UK, US, France, Mexico, Germany, CISG and UNIDROIT Principles) are applied to damages claims for breach of complex long-term contracts including privately-financed infrastructure projects and public-private partnerships.
  • Uses a step-by-step approach for the application of the but-for method and its relationship to loss, causation and the measure of damages
  • Refers to best international and national practices for the reconstruction of the hypothetical course of events to solve the legal, financial and economic issues involved in the determination and quantification of damages claims and the proper reasoning of arbitral awards
  • Makes extended reference to high profile ICC, UNCITRAL and ICSID cases and unpublished awards in which the authors were involved
