2021 NYIAC Annual Grand Central Forum Features James Hosking as Speaker

Where Advocacy Meets Business

September 2021 – The New York International Arbitration Center will be hosting its Annual Grand Central Forum on Monday, October 4th from 12:30pm to 2pm EST.  Before an international arbitration tribunal is confirmed, counsel has a choice between seeking provisional measures from an emergency arbitrator or a judge.  What strategic considerations should guide counsel’s analysis in choosing the most appropriate route?  Are the same provisional measures available from an emergency arbitrator and a judge?  Under what standard?  How expedited is the process?  How enforceable is the order granting provisional relief?  Grand Central Forum will explore these topics with prominent experts:  a judge and attorneys serving both as counsel and arbitrators.
