News: Update on Covid-19's effect on cases at the DIA
The Danish Institute of Arbitration (“DIA”) handles cases and answers inquiries by telephone and email in the usual manner.
In accordance with the Prime Minister of Denmark’s recommendations, the DIA’s staff is working from home – for the time being until April 13, 2020 – which is why the DIA is closed for inquiries in person, unless otherwise is expressly agreed with the DIA.
The DIA is in ongoing dialogue with arbitrators and parties on the conduct of physical meetings. For the time being, the arbitral tribunals have postponed physical meetings until the situation is normalized. Alternatively, the arbitral tribunals and the parties may consider whether cases may be decided in whole or in part on a written basis. Additionally, it may also be considered whether meetings can be advantageously held through the use of telecommunications.
The DIA is monitoring the situation closely and will return with further information on an ongoing basis.
