RESPONDENT’S COUNSEL, TWENTY ESSEX, LONDON

“The experience of conducting a case via video technology was] “so close to an in-person hearing that I will be unhesitatingly recommending this technology to clients even after the COVID-19 crisis is over. It did not feel like a second-best option, but rather a state-of-the-art facility that let the arbitration run without hindrances.”

ARBITRATOR, STEPHENSON HARWOOD LLP

“Our experience of holding a virtual hearing from Maxwell Chambers was a very positive one. The hearing required simultaneous attendance from people across three continents and the presentation of witnesses in different languages. The video conferencing facilities operated without difficulty and with very minimal time lag.”

MANAGING DIRECTOR, NOTARY PUBLIC, GHOWS LLC

“We finished a 7-day domestic arbitration which was held at Maxwell Chambers. Fortunately, Maxwell Chambers and the official transcribers, were able to set up the video conference link with an official transcription being taken. The evidence taking generally went well. Overall, the video conference link worked well. With a little fine-tuning, it is a very good solution.”

SENIOR PARTNER, DENTONS RODYK

“Very well actually. All 3 expert witnesses were very cooperative, so much so that it did not seem virtual at times, and it was as though we were all physically in Maxwell Chambers’ Henderson Room. Maxwell Chambers’ technical support was excellent and the dry run before [the] actual day ironed out most technical issues. If the Tribunal wanted to ensure that counsel’s face appears on [the] screen, Maxwell Chamber’s moderator was a request away, and he would then do the necessary pinning.”

SENIOR COUNSEL AND CHARTERED ARBITRATOR, MICHAEL HWANG CHAMBERS

“Maxwell Chambers has the unique feature of housing an abundance of international bodies and firms associated with arbitration. For those who are arbitration practitioners, the convenience of being next to SIAC and Maxwell’s hearing rooms is obvious. Foreign arbitral institutions also find benefit in being able to interact and collaborate with other arbitration practitioners and institutions in the same building. All these elements lead to a synergy and a collegiality among the occupants of Maxwell Chambers which is difficult to emulate anywhere else in the world.”
