January 2016 – The International Centre of Dispute Resolution, the international division of the American Arbitration Association, has been at the forefront of international alternative dispute resolution (ADR). This year’s International Arbitration Conference in Miami celebrates and analyzes the ICDR’s accomplishments, while looking ahead to the future of the international arbitration field.
Chaffetz Lindsey partner Aníbal Martín Sabater is a faculty member for a panel on Thursday, January 28th at 4pm titled “The Lagging Acceptance of International Mediation.” This session will discuss the interesting and growing practice of mediation in recent years and why it still lags behind arbitration. The panel will also examine how the international business community benefit more from this excellent tool.
Thomas J. Stipanowich, of the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution, will be the Session Keynote Speaker, followed by a discussion to be led by additional faculty members Mercedes Tarrazon (Dispute Management; Barcelona) and Eduardo Zuleta (Gómez-Pinzón Zuleta; Bogotá). Edna Sussman of Sussman ADR will serve as the moderator.
