Transnational Arbitration Observer (TAO)

The Transnational Arbitration Observer (TAO, newsletter is an initiative of Diego Alonso Massa in collaboration with publisher Maris B.V.. The TAO service is a source of daily news and analysis aimed at keeping its readership abreast of recent developments in transnational arbitration (investment & commercial arbitration, mediation, and so forth). It complements the existing Transnational Dispute Management (TDM, ISSN 1875-4120) publication, founded by Professor Thomas W. Wälde (1949-2008), which provides in-depth articles written by a large global network of legal experts.

When needed, English translations (in full or in their relevant parts) of primary or secondary documents (drafted in Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, Catalan, Dutch, German or Swedish) related to the news or analysis concerned will be included and made available to TAO subscribers. The news will include links to sources and combined (where possible) with relevant documents available for download making it a valuable and timesaving research tool.
