Arbitrating with Non-Participating Respondents: Pitfalls and Best Practices
Thursday, 5 November 2020 | 12:00 EDT
With the increasing likelihood that, due to the pandemic, arbitrators and claimants will encounter more cases with non-participating respondents, join us for an interactive roundtable discussion addressing practical issues and challenges for arbitrators and counsel arising out of these cases.
A panel of seasoned practitioners will both identify various thorny procedural and substantive issues presented by cases with non-participating respondents, and provide practical guidance for counsel and arbitrators when presenting or evaluating evidence, as well as measures that should be considered or taken to balance the due process rights of non-participating respondents with the need to move the arbitration forward and render an enforceable award.
This event is part of USCIB/ICC USA’s Sole Practitioner Group “Nuts & Bolts Arbitrator Series,” and supported by CIArbNY. It will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
• Claudia Salomon, FCIArb (moderator), Partner, Latham & Watkins LLP, New York; Vice President, ICC International Court of Arbitration
• Juliet Blanch, Arbitrator, Arbitration Chambers, London and Hong Kong; Member, ICC International Court of Arbitration
• Lawrence S. Schaner, FCIArb, Arbitrator, Schaner Dispute Resolution LLC, Chicago
