ROLE OF IN HOUSE COUNSEL IN
INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION
International arbitration is today the default means of resolving cross-border disputes. All businesses today are multinational and
transact business internationally, and in-house counsel need to be able to guide their companies and senior management
through the international arbitration process and to explain to stake-holders what the process involves and the steps to take to
ensure the best possible outcome.
This two-hour seminar aims to equip in-house counsel with practical knowledge needed to effectively structure and draft dispute
resolution provisions, and to leverage the arbitration process to effectively and efficiently resolve and settle any disputes that may
arise.
