November 2021 –The second annual New York Arbitration Week (NYAW), a joint event led by the New York International Arbitration Center (NYIAC) and the New York Branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArbNY), is taking place virtually November 16th through 20th. Chaffetz Lindsey’s Aníbal Sabater will speak on Tuesday, November 16th at 9am on a panel to discussion about “The Competition: International Arbitration, International Commercial Courts and the Singapore Convention.” Businesses facing international disputes have an increasing range of options beyond arbitration with the rise of international commercial courts and the increasing prominence of mediation following the launch of the Singapore Convention. The panel will examine and explore what such competition might mean for the future of international arbitration and the role arbitral institutions may play to preserve and progress the utility of arbitration in an increasingly crowded dispute resolution marketplace. Topics for discussion include the relationship between commercial courts and international arbitration, effect of the Singapore Convention on international arbitration, and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on each of these dispute resolution mechanisms. Aníbal’s co-panelists include Professor Lawrence Boo (National University of Singapore, Singapore), Toby Landau QC (Counsel and Arbitrator, Duxton Hill Chambers); Lucy Reed (Independent Arbitrator, Arbitration Chambers); Dr. S.I. Strong (Associate Professor of Law – The University of Sydney Law School).
Chaffetz Lindsey is pleased to be a sponsor of New York Arbitration Week.
