IADC 2018 Annual Meeting

Start date: July 7, 2018
End date: July 12, 2018
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: Epic Sana Lisboa, Lisbon, Portugal

Elizabeth Haecker Ryan will speak on “Multi-Party and Multi-Contract Disputes in International Arbitration,” on July 9, at 8:45am.

Major commercial projects typically involve multiple parties and interconnected contracts. When settling disputes arising from these projects through international arbitration, parties and counsel face various challenges not typically encountered in state court litigation involving multiple parties and contracts. In the context of a hypothetical fact scenario, this panel comprised of experienced in-house and external counsel will show you how to address such challenges based on the major arbitration rules and their recent amendments designed to address multi-party and multi-contract situations. Issues to be discussed include intervention or joinder of non-signatories having a direct interest in the outcome; parallel or follow-on arbitrations in related contracts or involving the same or related parties; confidentiality and privacy issues; and effectively tailoring arbitration clauses.
