The strengthening of trade and investment ties between Asia and Africa carries with it the potential for commercial disputes of an international character. This underpins the need for arbitration as an expert, expeditious and enforceable mechanism in order to deal with the potential rise in cases. To address the needs of the disputing parties and to tailor suitable mechanisms, legal counsel is required to be aware of the current state of arbitration and other means of alternative dispute resolution on both continents. In light of this, the AIAC YPG is proud to present a unique event featuring prominent speakers from diverse backgrounds to share their dispute resolution experience in Africa and Asia.
WilmerHale Senior Associate Jonathan Lim will speak on the topic “Energy Arbitration in Asia and Africa.”
