Description:
International arbitration has become a very important mechanism for resolving national and international disputes.  The rise in the number of arbitrations in Latin America and the increasing sophistication of practitioners in the region has led to an increase in the number of Latin American arbitrators and arbitration practitioners with experience dealing with and/or applying New York law.  Nonetheless, international arbitration in Latin America is far from being a homogeneous unit. Countries in the region are different and each have a distinct legal system and approach to international arbitration. This panel will discuss the differences that U.S. parties may encounter in arbitration and/or enforcing awards in their jurisdictions including how New York law is dealt with.
