Workshop: "Legal Consequences of Corruption and Money Laundering in International Arbitration"

Picture showing a hand that is holding money.

Corruption and money laundering affecting an underlying dispute are a considerable challenge for arbitrators and parties in investment and commercial arbitration. If corruption and/or money laundering is established, arbitrators need to decide about the legal consequences for the parties’ claims. On the one hand, corruption cannot be condoned. On the other hand, parties should not be allowed to free themselves of their obligations easily. The consequences if an arbitration involves funds of illicit origin equally need to be discussed. This workshop follows up on the 2019 “Toolkit for Arbitrators” and specifically focuses on legal consequences of corruption and money laundering in international arbitration. It is organized by the Competence Centre Arbitration and Crime and the Faculty of Law, Prof. Dr. Mark Pieth.
