March 2018 – Chaffetz Lindsey was proud to sponsor the ICDR’s Annual Y&I Coffee House Debate that took place in Vienna on March 25th at Palais Daun-Kinsky on the occasion of the 25th annual Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot. The event was co-hosted by YAS (Young Arbitrators Sweden). Chaffetz Lindsey attorney Gretta Walters spoke on a panel that debated the following topics:
Who´s paying for the coffee? Debate proposition: Third party funding creates arbitrator conflicts that must be disclosed
The café selects the baristas, not the customer! Debate proposition: Only institutions should appoint arbitrators as party appointments imperil legitimacy
This was the 14th anniversary of the event, of which Chaffetz Lindsey partner James Hosking was a co-founder. James and Gretta both attended the Vis moot as judges and as co-coaches of, respectively, Harvard Law School and NYU.
