JAMS and AABANY present a hybrid panel discussion on International Arbitration.

Join speakers representing counsel, client and arbitrator perspectives for a primer on arbitration as a dispute resolution method with special focus on how and why this option is useful in resolving cross-border and international matters.

What is Arbitration? 

Arbitration is a private and confidential dispute resolution mechanism where parties contractually agree to resolve their dispute outside of a court and design how disputes are resolved. 
    • How is Arbitration different than Litigation?
    • Benefits of international arbitration over international litigation
    • Different types of international arbitration 
    • How do you get a case into international arbitration? 
    • What goes into a dispute resolution clause? 
    • How do international arbitrations work once the dispute resolution clause is triggered?
    • Client perspectives on international arbitration/what kinds of international arbitration do clients prefer? 
    • Don’t forget to confirm your award
    • Challenges and common pitfalls for international arbitration - attorney, neutral, and client perspectives
