The Changing Landscape of ADR in Latin America and the U.S. Influence: A Primer for Inside and Outside Counsel
Friday, March 31, 2017 | 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM EST

New domestic and foreign laws, new trade treaties, growing foreign investment, and clogged court systems have created a perfect storm of unprecedented delays and unpredictable outcomes, all weighing in favor of ADR instead of traditional litigation in Latin America jurisdictions. However, while the use of arbitration and mediation is growing explosively in some Latin American markets, it is languishing in others.

This panel of leading practitioners will discuss the growth of ADR in Mexico, Brazil and Central America as well as the factors that have negatively impacted the growth of ADR in other parts of the region. The panel will also address how the changing political climate in the United States may impact litigation and the use of ADR in Latin America.
