The “Wake up (with) Arbitration!” team, composed of Caroline Duclercq, Valence Borgia and Maria Beatriz Burghetto, have unveiled the calendar for the next breakfast round tables for 2017.

The next topics will be the following:

  • Is acting as arbitrator today playing risk lovers like in “Hart to Hart”?”
  • Arbitrator and defaulting party: alone like in “The Martian”?
  • The accelerated arbitration procedure: “The Fast and the Furious”?
  • Arbitration’s flexibility: “Grand Illusion”?

The dates and speakers will soon be announced.

If you are already interested in one of the topics, do not hesitate to register as the small roundtable format (maximum of 20 participants) is maintained.

As a reminder, 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.

For more information and to participate in one of the next round-tables, the “Wake up (with) Arbitration!” team may be found on their blog or their LinkedIn group, “Wake up (with) Arbitration!” You may also contact them here.
