COVID-19 has upended businesses and transactions and also the way international arbitration is practised during this period. Is the use of virtual hearings in international arbitration here to stay? Do existing arbitral rules and national arbitration legislation permit virtual hearings? Will there be legal challenges filed in response to virtual hearings and how successful will they be? Has COVID-19 created a catalyst to make the arbitral process cheaper, more efficient and more flexible for users? Is there going to be an increase in arbitration disputes from certain industries in the wake of COVID-19?
Join us for this exciting webinar as leading international arbitration practitioners and arbitrators from the Middle East, Singapore and the United Kingdom examine these issues.
