Hogan Lovells Protocol for the use of technology in international arbitration hearings Version 2.0

Version 2.0 of the Protocol for the use of technology in international arbitration hearings is intended to further promote and enable the fair and transparent presentation of evidence and prioritize the seamless and secure transmission of documents, video, and audio from different locations, while limiting technical disruptions for both fully remote hearings where all participants are in different locations as well as for semi-remote or hybrid hearings where some participants are in one main hearing location with others participating from one or more remote locations.

Members of the Hogan Lovells International Arbitration practice group, including Daniel E. Gonzalez, Samaa Haridi, Alvin Lindsay, Nicole Geldenhuys, Nata Ghibradze, and Nadine Lederer, updated the Protocol to ensure a smooth process for all involved in international arbitration hearings. The updated version provides revised recommendations and best practices, which are optional and may require additional customization on a case-by-case basis. Additional revisions to Version 2.0 include an overview of key considerations parties may wish to address prior to conducting and participating in a remote hearing, including location, time zones, test sessions, security, among others. The interactive PDF also expands on the use of hearing platforms and includes valuable remote hearing checklists for participants.
