Panel Discussion: Arbitration of Sino-Brazilian Disputes

Panel Discussion: Arbitration of Sino-Brazilian Disputes

Speaking Engagement

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP is delighted to invite you to a panel discussion on the arbitration of Sino-Brazilian disputes.

Chinese investment in Brazil reached a seven-year high in 2017 of $24.7 billion. As Chinese investment in and trade with Brazil continues to increase, so does the potential for arbitration disputes. What is the most suitable choice of law, seat and arbitral institution for such disputes? Where does Brazil fit with the Belt and Road Initiative? What is the role of arbitral institutions based in Europe and Asia?

These issues and more will be debated by a panel comprising Duncan Speller and Jonathan Lim from Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, together with Guilherme Rizzo Amaral, ambassador to the ICC Commission on the Belt and Road Initiative and Partner at Souto Correa (Brazil), and André Luís Monteiro, Visiting Scholar at Queen Mary University of London and Associate at Andrade & Fichtner Advogados (Brazil).

We look forward to welcoming you to a lively and topical discussion. The panel discussion will be followed by a reception with drinks and light canapes.
