2016 Agenda for the breakfast debates “Wake up (With) Arbitration!”

The “Wake up (with) Arbitration!” team, composed of Caroline Duclercq, Valence Borgia and Maria Beatriz Burghetto, unveiled the calendar for the next breakfast round tables for 2016.

The next topics will be the following:

  • 2 February 2016 : “Is the “small” arbitration world only adapted to the biggest?, with Annet van Hooft, lawyer and Philippe Chavasse, Legal Department Fives;
  • April / May 2016: “Will the confidentiality of arbitration survive transparency’s tyranny?“, with Marine Lallemand, lawyer and Sigvard Jarvin, lawyer;
  • 17 September 2016 : “Deliberations: a replay of the game?“, with Catherine Kessedjian, Professor, Panthéon-Assas University and Pierre Duprey, lawyer;
  • 7 December 2016 : “Applicable law: the unapplied law?“, with Carine Dupeyron, counsel and Peter Rosher, counsel.

If you already are interested by a topic, do not hesitate to enroll because the small format of the round tables is kept, i.e., 20 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 twenty 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.
