I attended the Arbitration Advocacy presentation by the Advocates Society on March 27th.
This was the first such session presented by the Advocates Society and included a review of the myriad legislation existing both in Canada and Internationally on Commercial Arbitrations. Experienced practitioners discussed cultural and legal system differences that were highlighted by some fascinating tales of intrigue and hijackings of witnesses. It did, as a questioner pointed out, reinforce the value of arbitration in international off shore contractual disputes instead of having to resort to the local courts.
Great session. I recommend you keep an eye out for more like this. If you have any questions, please call or email me directly: *protected email* or 416-350-5823
Thanks for reading,
