July 2016 – Aníbal Sabater recently moderated the New York Arbitration Center’s Grand Central Forum and interviewed Gary Born, who is president of SIAC and head of international arbitration at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr. Claudia Salomon of Latham & Watkins also participated in the discussion. Global Arbitration Review has summarized that interview in an article called “Game of Tribunals,” a clever play on Born’s references to Game of Thrones.
Born addressed a range of topics from the continuing importance of the seat of arbitration to the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales’s recent comments proposing more judicial review of cases and the criticisms that face investor-state dispute settlement. He contends that international arbitration has enjoyed “a long golden summer when everything went right” but “winter is coming,” and as such the community needs to defend it more vigorously.
