2014 Agenda for the Breakfast Debates “Wake up (With) Arbitration!”

The “Wake up (with) Arbitration!” team, composed of Caroline Duclercq, Valence Borgia et Maria Beatriz Burghetto, unveiled the calendar for the next breakfast round tables for 2013.

The next topics will be the following:

  • February 2014: Arbitral institutions: a real added value?
  • May 2014: Discovery: a necessary evil?
  • July 2014: Do counsel and arbitrators speak the same language?
  • September 2014: Is it possible to reduce costs without sacrificing the quality of the arbitration?
  • November 2014: Quantification of damages: is there ONE good method?

The dates and speakers will be announced soon.  However, if you already are interested by a topic, do not hesitate to enrol because the small format of the round tables is kept, i.e., 15 participants maximum!

Each of these subjects will be presented by two speakers, who will each plead for 10 minutes, one for the affirmative position and the other one, for the negative. Their presentations will be followed by a one-hour free debate during which all the attendees will be encouraged to present their views and ask questions.

As a reminder, the “Wake up (with) Arbitration!” round tables gather a maximum of fifteen people, all arbitration practitioners (lawyers, in-house counsel and experts) of varied levels of experience and age. The goal is to freely
exchange ideas and ask questions related to certain questions that are not frequently dealt with because of their essentially practical or “politically incorrect” nature, or related to hot issues that are too recent to be dealt with in conferences. The spirit is definitely relaxed and professional, with an equal representation of women and men in order to mirror the diversity among arbitration practitioners.
