An important aspect of the criticism of investor- state dispute settlement (ISDS) concerns the qualities of arbitrators and their independence and impartiality. Amongst the detractors of the system is US Senator Elizabeth Warren who warned inter alia that ‘ISDS could lead to gigantic fines, but it wouldn’t employ independent judges. Instead, highly paid corporate lawyers would go back and forth between representing corporations one day and sitting in judgment the next.

"International Arbitration as a Transnational System of Justice," in Arbitration - The Next Fifty Years, ICCA Congress Series No. 16, 2012, pp.66-73. by Prof. Dr. Emmanuel Gaillard (Shearman & Sterling LLP, Paris, France)

“1912-2012. A giant has left us, but in the fullness of time and having set an incomparable example of a life lived to the full, bequeathing profound substantive contributions to the international community, an enduring model of elegance and manners and infectious joy. He might not really have wanted a moment of silence, so let our spirits soar as we remember the happy man and his constant laughter and encouragement.” - Jan Paulsson
