International arbitration – practical guidance for in-house counsel

Overview

As the effects of Covid-19 continue to be felt around the world, businesses continue to face significant levels of instability and uncertainty caused by weakened financial markets and disruption to supply chains, workplace operations and business pipelines. Such instability and uncertainty will result in a growth in the number and types of disputes, and we have already seen judicial systems twist and turn to adapt to the new global ‘norms’.

In this webinar, brought to you by The Legal 500 and Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, we will bring together leading private practice and in-house lawyers to discuss the evolving arbitration scene and provide practical guidance on managing international disputes in 2021.

Discussion points:

    • The end user’s perspective: how GCs can stay on top of disputes – ways to ensure cost effective and efficient dispute resolution proceedings.
    • How to win virtual arbitration hearings.
    • What do in-house counsel expect from external firms during the arbitral process?
    • The logistics of initiating arbitration proceedings – planning, choice of counsel, costs, choosing the ‘right’ arbitral rules and seat of the arbitrations – some practical considerations.
    • Harmony of dispute settlement provisions (expert determination, negotiation clauses, and arbitration).
    • Sustainability in arbitration – reducing the environmental impact on disputes.
