Dechert Senior Associate Co-Authors International Arbitration Glossary

February 06, 2017
Dechert Associate Dr. Natia Lapiashvili co-authored the International Arbitration Glossary with Georgian International Arbitration Centre (GIAC) Secretary-General Mr. Beka Injia. The book was prepared and printed with financial assistance from the European Union (EU) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

According to the authors, the need for such a glossary was apparent in the Georgian legal community due to the fact that different aspects of international arbitration are not known broadly and there is no established terminology that corresponds to the legal terms widely used in other languages. The authors aim to establish relevant Georgian-language terms in order to enable their consistent use and to raise awareness about international arbitration in Georgia.

Ms. Lapiashvili and Mr. Injia hope the glossary will play an important role from an educational point of view, especially considering the limited number of publications available in the Georgian language on international commercial and investment arbitration.
