Please join the Miami International Arbitration Society for its Webinar, “Roundtable Discussion: Arbitration Institutions in Latin America” on July 14, 2020 at 2:30 p.m. As the global COVID-19 pandemic develops, arbitration providers worldwide have evolved to accommodate the need for efficient and effective access to dispute resolution. In Latin America, although the situation is generating opportunities, the situation is further compounded by the economic and political crises that are taking place in many of the countries. The program will explore how arbitral institutions in Latin America are managing current caseloads and preparing for future uncertainties, challenges and change.
The featured speakers, Cecilia Flores Rueda, Macarena Letelier, and Katherine Gonzalez Arrocha, moderated by Diana Droulers, will discuss the following questions: How have institutions managed the existing cases? How prepared are institutions for a forthcoming surge of claims? How might COVID-19 accelerate existing following trends? How will institutions respond? Will commercial and investment arbitrations be on the rise due to the state of flux in Latin America? To have some answers to the foregoing, please register here.
