Sandton | October 02, 2019

Litigation in a foreign court can be expensive, complex, unfair and time consuming. Arbitration is an increasingly popular solution for international, commercial and investment disputes and the launch of the African Continental Free Trade Area, with its emphasis on arbitration, reflects that popularity.

Please join us for an interactive breakfast presentation where we will unpack the latest arbitration law topics and how these will affect you, your industry and your customers. The seminar will cover choosing the right arbitration centre for a specific case, different costing models, funding for arbitration, the new International Arbitration Act in South Africa, new regional arbitration centres and how bilateral investment treaties prevent expropriation without compensation.

Mark Baker, Norton Rose Fulbright’s global co-head of International Arbitration is our guest speaker. Mark practices complex commercial arbitration, business litigation and alternative dispute resolution.

A number of our local directors will also be speaking on topics related to arbitration both in South Africa and internationally.

We hope you‘ll be able to join us for what promises to be an interesting morning.
