How often will I have to travel to Paris during the arbitral procedure?

You can have the seat of your arbitration in Paris without ever needing to come to Paris. This is because it is possible to obtain the benefits of Paris as the legal place of arbitration while holding hearings elsewhere or not holding hearings at all. In most cases, parties will come to Paris at least once during the course of an arbitration – when final hearings are held. In many cases, parties will come to Paris another time to meet in person for a procedural hearing early in the process.
