Companies doing business abroad routinely insert a mandatory arbitration clause to resolve all disputes. But international arbitration is very different from U.S. litigation in most respect, e.g., discovery, presentation of evidence, the rules governing the tribunal’s deliberations. This panel explored the corporate client’s paramount concerns, the arbitrator’s view on effective and ineffective advocacy, the emergency of international mediation, and the outside lawyer’s tips on winning strategies.
