Conflicts of Interest in International Arbitration - Recent Developments

Location: Serle Court

The increasing use of International Arbitration to determine commercial and investment treaty disputes has in turn given rise to greater focus on issues such as cost and delay. In addition, the role and responsibility of arbitrators (mostly party appointed), as well as safeguarding the arbitral process from negative perceptions has led to significant changes in the context of Conflict of Interest. The seminar will review the revised IBA Rules, recent English case law, and Investment Treaty related cases.

The seminar will be co-chaired by Sir Stanley Burnton (former Court of Appeal Judge) and Sir Bernard Eder (former High Court Judge), and will cover:

Panel 1: The role and responsibilities of Arbitrators

Chairman: Sir Stanley Burnton
Speakers: Khawar Qureshi QC (Serle Court) and Dominique Brown-Berset (Brown&Page, Geneva)

Panel 2: The role and responsibilities of Counsel

Chairman: Sir Bernard Eder
Speakers: Christopher Hancock QC (former Chairman of Combar and author of Bar Council Guidance on Conflict of Interest in Arbitration) and Michael Buehler (Jones Day, Paris)
