Speaking Engagement

In the early 1980’s a tectonic shift occurred in the global economy – for the first time in history, US trade and investment across the Pacific exceeded that across the Atlantic. That trend has only accelerated ever since as the economies of the region have continued to grow and mature. Inevitably, increased business activity has resulted in more international disputes and more international arbitration. Many countries of the Asia-Pacific have risen to the challenge by enacting up-to-date statutory structures, building and expanding arbitral institutions, and adopting new rules and practices which are now among the most advanced in the world.

In this session, leading arbitration experts from the region will cover major developments in this new and rapidly changing environment including the spread and influence of the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration (the UML), the bifurcation of legal regimes for international and domestic arbitration, the development and activities of some of the major arbitral institutions including those based outside the region, cultural influences such as the combining of arbitration and mediation, and representation by foreign lawyers of parties in arbitration.
