International Arbitration in the Spotlight: from Tokyo to New York is the second conference organized by Arbitration Center at ANO “ISA” and LF Academy with support from St. Petersburg International Legal Forum.
The overwhelming majority of the most prominent international arbitration institutions have recently revised their rules paying special attention to multi-party arbitration, consolidation and multi-contract arbitration. The leading Russian arbitration institutions take into account such experience in order to make their rules no less attractive and convenient to parties. During the first session of the conference the recent changes in arbitration rules will be analysed by the representatives of both foreign and Russian institutions.
The practical aspects of arbitration, inter alia, work of arbitrators, parties and their representatives, also keep changing. Experience of the professionals from foreign jurisdiction who have already faced such changes is, therefore, of high interest. During the second session solutions to various challenges posed by the recent changes in international commercial arbitration will be vividly discussed.
