Chaffetz Lindsey partner James Hosking is a faculty member for a session titled “International Construction and Infrastructure Projects: The Latest Conflict-Management Options.” The panel will focus on innovative tools to use in international arbitration and mediation of disputes stemming from construction and infrastructure projects. Several members of the Chaffetz Lindsey team are involved in such disputes involving Brazil and many other jurisdictions.
James will be joined on the panel by Oliver J. Armas (Hogan Lovells LLP, New York); Tony Dymond (Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, London); Patricia D. Galloway (Pegasus Global Holdings,Inc., Cle Elum); and José Antonio Fichtner (Andrade & Fichtner, Rio de Janeiro). Mauricio Gomm Santos (Gomm & Smith PA, Miami) will serve as the moderator.
