Commercial Litigation and International Arbitration
Los Angeles County Bar Association 1055 West 7th Street, Suite 2700 Los Angeles, CA 90017
Gone are the days when parties automatically chose London, Paris, Geneva or New York as the seat for international arbitration. The faces of arbitration are changing. With more parties and more investment power coming from other parts of the world, new dispute resolution options are being chosen – or imposed – on North American and European business operators. How do you react when a powerful business partner suggests an Asian venue for arbitration? This panel will focus on Asian venues by addressing ten questions that parties and their counsel should consider when negotiating a place for resolving disputes. Among others, the panel with explore: who arbitrates (or should arbitrate) in Asia? What are the major institutions operating in Asia and what can I expect from them? What is the status of the New York Convention, and is there a modern arbitration law?
