Demystifying International Arbitration – Tips and Insights from industry leaders


Practitioners have for a long time been told that arbitration presents the next frontier for international dispute resolution.  Leveraging on this, Singapore has built an enviable reputation as a world-class venue for international arbitration.


But what really does international arbitration entail?  Do the perceived advantages such as speed, cost savings and ease of enforcement hold true in today's context?  What are some of the tips and potential pitfalls that a practitioner new to international arbitration should watch out for?


Join us on 16 September 2015 for an interactive seminar that will shed light on a range of issues related to this increasingly popular form of dispute resolution.  The session will be presented by experienced practitioners who will share their unique insights gleaned from their years of experience on both sides of the arbitrator's table.  This will be followed by a panel discussion featuring corporate counsel and practitioners sharing their perspectives and experience in international arbitration.
