International Arbitration: A New Era for California, Your Clients and You (San Francisco)

Presented by The Rutter Group

About the Event

2019 is the year for international arbitration in California! As of January 1st, newly-enacted SB 766 explicitly allows non-U.S. or out-of-state attorneys licensed in their home jurisdictions to appear in a California international commercial arbitration proceeding. The major reason foreign and out-of-state lawyers previously objected to siting international arbitrations in California, or agreeing in arbitration clauses to California being the venue of international arbitrations, is gone.

Thus, with its geographic advantages for the Pacific Rim and NAFTA countries (and its potential replacement by the USMCA), as well as California’s attractiveness to visitors and its robust arbitration community, we can anticipate our state becoming a significant center for international arbitration. The distinguished panel of arbitrators and practitioners will explain what has changed in California and the difference in an arbitration when it is international. Given the broad definition of international arbitration contained in the California statutes, all arbitrators, litigators, and corporate counsel will find the information from this panel indispensable to their work.
