Three Crowns, in collaboration with The Legal 500, will host a webinar, “Making arbitration work for your client: secrets of success at three key stages”, on Thursday 19 May at 11:00am ET / 4:00pm BST.
Our speakers include:
- Mimi Lee, Managing Counsel at Chevron
- Chris Ghazarian, General Counsel at DreamHost
- Liz Snodgrass, Partner at Three Crowns LLP
- Scott Vesel, Partner at Three Crowns LLP
Parties choose international arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism for many reasons, including the neutrality it provides parties from different countries. This webinar will focus on three aspects of international arbitration proceedings—tribunal selection, document production, and the presentation of witnesses—that give parties an opportunity to optimise the process to achieve the effective, efficient, and fair resolution of even the most complex disputes.
