Oil Gushing in Arbitration Survey

An American Lawyer survey of international arbitration trends shows a surge in energy disputes and Latin American cases.

The oil, gas and utility sectors make up more than a third of the 2007 Arbitration Scorecard, while Latin American cases constitute 34 percent, according to the legal magazine.

Sixty-three cases in the survey of 232 arbitrations were worth at least $1 billion.
