"The Asian Forum for Arbitration Counsel was an excellent experience. A small group of highly experienced and qualified counsel from diverse jurisdictions exchanging free-flowing ideas and experiences was a treat. Personally, I have started recently being appointed to act as an arbitrator for several disputes and I feel like the experiences shared in the room will be put in practice by me right away. In my practice as arbitration counsel there are a lot of helpful and practical ideas that are valuable and new. This is different from other conferences because of the small size of the group and free flow of discussion."Shyel Trehan Law Chambers of Kapur & Trehan New Delhi, India
