David Arias & Sofia Jalles
This article aims at exploring the provisions on conflicts of interests of the Code of Best Practices in Arbitration published by the Spanish Arbitration Club in 2019. The Code was drafted over a two-year period and makes recommendations for arbitration practitioners, drawing on the standards and recommendations of the principal arbitral institutions, and the principal guidelines published on the subject, whilst advocating for greater transparency in international arbitration. The present article compares and analyses how the main provisions on conflicts of interest of the Code of Best Practices diverge from or resemble existing standards and guidelines on the subject.
