Minneapolis English CLE Credit pending

This breakfast programme will examine key developments, such as emergency arbitrator proceedings, expedited procedure provisions and new ICC practices that aim to increase efficiency and transparency.

International arbitration has long been a popular alternative to litigation for resolving disputes arising in cross-border business transactions. A surge of recent innovations has sought to make international commercial arbitration even more desirable as an alternative by increasing efficiency and transparency, as well as reducing costs.

Has an evolution in procedural tools and institutional practices successfully allayed past criticisms and quelled current misconceptions about international commercial arbitration? How can parties make sure they best take advantage of these innovations? Join the ICC International Court of Arbitration and the United States Council for International Business (USCIB/ICC USA) for this breakfast discussion, hosted by Dorsey & Whitney LLP, as a roundtable of experts will examine these questions and share tips and best practices when using these modern features.
