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.
This elite group, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.
