ICC YAAF: Unraveling the Knot: Insolvency in the Realm of Arbitration

13 Jun 2024

New York English
Start: 17:45 (ET) - End: 20:15 (ET)

Join us for a discussion at the crossroads of insolvency and arbitration. Our speakers will explore the impact of insolvency on arbitration proceedings by navigating through various scenarios at different stages of an arbitration.

The conversation will kick off with an exploration of the early stages of an arbitration, examining how insolvency can influence the initiation and conduct of a case. The dialogue will then transition to the impact of insolvency on proceedings and the decision-making of the arbitrators. Our panelists will also shed light on the post-award stage, describing the challenges that may surface when enforcing an award in the context of insolvency. They will likewise venture into interactions with arbitral tribunals and bankruptcy courts. This event promises to provide a deep dive into a complex area of the arbitration field and will aim to equip practitioners with helpful insights for navigating the above issues.
