The Steering Committee welcomes a diverse and international group of 48 leading arbitration counsel at the peak of their career, who have moved beyond events aimed at “young” arbitrators.
Using candid, seminar-style discussions at this annual meeting, the group has an openness to examine new ways of thinking about aspects of practice in international arbitration ranging from legal topics, practice management, and innovation, as well as developments that may threaten the future of international arbitration as we know it.
Built on genuine interactions and spontaneous connections, the Forum is a unique opportunity for practical discussions among the next generation of global leaders in international arbitration.

This is what the Global Forum on International Arbitration brings you. The organization is meticulous, the practitioners and you feel taken care of. The interaction is personal and of high quality.
