The law of a specific country may have a significant impact on the arbitral proceedings and on their outcome.
Its applicable substantive law applies, when the parties have so elected or, in the absence, the Arbitrator has selected it. Even if the substantive law of the forum is not selected, its public policy prevails on any other substantive law.
The procedural law of the seat of the arbitral proceedings generally applies in addition to the arbitral rules. It also applies in support of the Arbitral Tribunal, at the local enforcement stage and for the challenges of the awards.
