Join us for an afternoon program featuring a keynote speech by Claudia Salomon, President of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, who will share her perspectives on what steps, tools and innovations should be considered by various stakeholders to better align arbitration, and dispute resolution generally, with the needs and expectations of companies in California and elsewhere. She will also discuss how arbitration in California is perceived internationally and what opportunities may lie ahead for California as a dispute resolution hub.

In response to Ms. Salomon’s keynote, a panel of leading in-house counsel based in California will provide their views on how institutions, arbitrators and counsel can better adapt to their needs and expectations.
