We’ve all heard the complaint that arbitration has become too expensive and lengthy. So what strategic choices can international arbitration users make to address these concerns? How can the choice of arbitrator, seat and arbitration rules influence arbitration’s efficiency, and what other impacts may such strategic choices have on the further course of the proceedings? What cross-examination techniques can strategically minded Counsel deploy? How can document production be used most effectively? And where do we draw the line between efficiency and due process? These topics and more will be the focus of a conference that will seek to offer its participants practical and useful information on strategic choices in international arbitration. With New York as its seat, the conference will feature speakers from varied geographic backgrounds and in particular explore American perspectives on these issues.

Finally, as our special feature, a “career panel” of top practitioners will share insight on advancing your career in international arbitration. Finally, the social program will leave nothing to be desired. We will enjoy the Big Apple’s countless sights, sounds and tastes, and the “City that Never Sleeps” will offer night owls plenty of opportunities to explore its bars and clubs. The Organizing Committee is dedicated to providing you with a true and authentic New York experience you will never forget. This will be an AIJA event not to be missed.
