MR. RAFAEL ESPINO RIEROLA has been appointed new President of the Tribunal Arbitral de Barcelona [Barcelona Arbitration Court].
To avoid confusion, in the light of questions we have been asked about this matter, we would like to make it clear to the general public that this institution is not related in any way with the Cort Arbitral de Catalunya.
The TAB is moving all its documents and case files onto the ‘cloud’ with the aim of making its administrative processes much simpler. This follows the example of other large European institutions of arbitration which have implemented similar processes.
This initiative, put forward by Barcelona Town Hall, invites society – civic bodies, associa- tions, social and economic organizations – to work together to construct a city which promotes a healthy work/life balance which allows sufficient time to be devoted to the family and leisure interests. The TAB is pleased to participate in this initiative to reinforce its support for the rationalization of timetables which could achieve this balance.
