In addition to an unprecedented human tragedy and health care crisis, the coronavirus pandemic has brought the deepest economic downturn in 100 years. In a new white paper, NERA Affiliated Consultant Mark L. Berenblut, Senior Consultant Marco Schönborn, and Consultant Ambrus Barany analyse the major economic disruption caused by COVID-19, how the current crisis differs from previous economic crises, and the likely consequences of the current market downturn for the next wave of international disputes.

This paper is part of NERA’s international arbitration white paper series, which aims to cover a range of international arbitration topics from the perspectives of economists and expert witnesses.
