September 2017 – Several Chaffetz Lindsey partners participated in Global Arbitration Review’s 6th Annual GAR Live NY Conference. Partner James Hosking co-chaired the event with Hagit Elul (Hughes Hubbard Reed). The conference addressed several hot-button issues that impact the practice of international arbitration in New York, drawing on insights from leading arbitration counsel, arbitrators, in-house counsel and academics.
Partner Aníbal Sabater moderated a panel that considered “Is arbitration insufficiently predictable?”. He was joined on the panel by Jean Kalicki (independent arbitrator), David Mitchell (BDO), Louise Firestone (SVP and General Counsel of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton), and Professor George Bermann (Columbia Law School). Co-chair James Hosking also led a panel on “Making International Arbitration Great Again.” The panel replicated a US senate committee hearing with James, John Fellas (Hughes Hubbard & Reed) and Lucy Greenwood (independent arbitrator) questioning a series of “witnesses” on the challenges facing arbitration and how to “fix” the system.
