An A to Z Update on the Arbitration of International Franchise Disputes – What’s New!

IFA Legal Symposium

Arbitration is often required by contracts as a means of dispute resolution, on the basis that it is perceived as being a cheaper, faster, and often better route to a resolution than litigation. That is especially true in the context of international agreements where the parties are in different countries. But complications do arise, and if not considered and managed, they can defeat the perceived advantages of arbitration. So, this workshop will consider best practices and “what’s new” in preparing for and dealing with contractual provisions (such as governing law and venue clauses, arbitration provisions), as well as the conduct of an international arbitration, such as panel selection, venue disputes, e-discovery, confidentiality, and enforcement.
