We are delighted to have co-hosted this London International Disputes Week session with Gatehouse Chambers and FTI Consulting.
Partner Michael Frisby took part in a panel discussion on the function of international commercial courts and international arbitration and the roles each play in the resolution of international disputes. Do they compete or complement each other and in a changing world, what does the future hold?
The panellist's discussion included the following:
- When we refer to ICCs what do we mean?
- Domestic courts handling international work compared to newly formed international courts:
- The standing forum of international commercial courts
- Pros and cons of international arbitration versus litigation
- What of the future for ICCs? Are ICCs in competition with International Arbitration or is something else going on here?
This panel was comprised of Dame Elizabeth Gloster DBE (PC, Chair), Michael Frisby (Partner, Stevens & Bolton LLP), Frederico Singarajah, (Barrister, Gatehouse Chambers), Chris Johnston (Managing Director, FTI Consulting).
The discussion was also the subject of Kluwer Arbitration Blog.
