LONDON, July 27, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Covington has launched a new app designed specifically for smart phones and tablets called — 'The Arbitration Handbook'.
The app compiles over 90 resources (arbitral rules, treaties, national laws and guidelines) commonly used in international arbitration into one convenient electronic resource, while enabling users to bookmark and annotate the content. Complete with a search function across its entire content, the app will be regularly updated to reflect the shifting landscape of arbitral rules around the world. The app is available from Apple's App Store and Google Play free of charge.
"The legal community needs to be apprised of developments in the field of international arbitration and we felt that in light of the rise of mobile and tablet use, an app would be a convenient way of doing so," said Marney Cheek, partner and co-chair of Covington's global arbitration practice. "The Arbitration Handbook will be an easily accessible, consistently up-to-date resource for practitioners globally."
Stephen Bond, senior of counsel in the firm's London office, notes, "I call the app the Covington Arbitration Hand-E-Book. Infinitely handy, I'm confident that most arbitration professionals will download the app, and no client should ever again be charged for counsel digging out these key resources."
Jeremy Wilson, an international arbitration partner in London and co-chair of the European litigation practice, added: "Having had the opportunity to use the app internally, we are excited to share this useful tool with our friends and colleagues in the arbitration community."
