by AmCham Romania June 7, 2024

The Bucharest International Arbitration Court | BIAC has recently appointed Kabir Duggal as Honorary President. 

Mr. Duggal has extensive experience in arbitration, having been involved in some of the largest investor-state disputes, primarily representing states and state entities, although he has occasionally represented investors as well. He is an attorney at Arnold & Porter, an Adjunct Professor at Columbia Law School, and the Managing Editor of the American Review of International Arbitration.

Kabir Duggal: “I am very honored and delighted to serve as the President of BIAC. Romania's strategic location along with a very talented bar of Romanian lawyers promise to take BIAC to even greater heights. We look forward to undertaking training and conferences, in addition to providing the best practices for the arbitral process at BIAC, while creating a welcoming culture for everyone interested.

He succeeds BIAC’s first Honorary President, Annet van Hooft who had an important contribution to ensuring BIAC’s successful launch and in establishing a solid foundation for BIAC.

The Bucharest International Arbitration Court (BIAC) is a Romania-based arbitration center, operating established under the auspices of the American Chamber of Commerce in Romania, focusing on business and commercial disputes in Romanian and English, especially involving foreign investors and multinationals active in Romania.

BIAC’s closed list of Romania-based and foreign arbitrators includes well-known international arbitrators who are specialized in niche areas such as FIDIC/construction law, international commercial and corporate law, intellectual property (IP) rights, banking, corporate and project finance as well as VC/PE investments.

BIAC’s rules of arbitration are based on a combination of "best practices" arising from various international arbitration rules such as UNCITRAL, the LCIA, the ICC and the AAA/ICDR, and by reference therein has adopted the International Bar Association’s Guidelines on Conflicts of Interest in International Commercial Arbitration and the International Bar Association’s Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Commercial Arbitration.
