Marcos Peña Rodríguez, Lawyer at the bar of the Dominican Republic.

We wish this seminar to be an additional reminder of the very strict obligations of the arbitrator to be independent, impartial, and to reveal in real time all transactions conducted by their law firms with the parties involved.

In fact, when the States of the Greater Caribbean working with support of the European Union's INTERREG program to implement the OHADAC program, inspired by the success of OHADA in Africa, it is extremely important to remember the obligations of independence, impartiality, and transparency that are required of arbitrators at all times. The arbitrator, no matter their reputation, must be independent and reveal any conflicts of interest that affect him/her or their law firms. This obligation of transparency is required of the arbitrator and no one else. This is the very essence of arbitration, its reason for being.
