    Event Synopsis:
    International arbitration has historically been considered a cheaper and faster way than litigation to settle disputes. However, some question whether that remains true today in light of the so-called “due process paranoia,” where tribunals allow too much procedural latitude at the expense of additional time and cost to the parties. Before choosing international arbitration as a resolution method, in-house counsel need to understand the current pros and cons of this dispute resolution method. And with an ever-evolving backdrop, litigators need up-to-date knowledge and strategies to gain favorable results for their clients, including understanding the different international arbitration regimes, how best to research potential arbitrators’ backgrounds, best practices for framing the matter to the tribunal,, cost-effective and results-driven discovery techniques, and data protection and enforcement of settlement arrangements.

    Join arbitration lawyers John Michael McNutt (Lazareff Le Bars) and Ana C. Reyes (Williams & Connolly LLP) as they provide an in-depth analysis of the recent trends and hot issues in the evolving field of international arbitration. They will also offer helpful insights on how to best address potential pitfalls as well as strategies to effectively navigate this landscape.
    Key topics include:

    • International Arbitration – Recent Significant Issues
    • Potential Pitfalls and How to Address Them

    • Best Strategies
    • What’s Ahead?
