ICCA Edinburgh 2022

Speaking Engagement

WilmerHale Special Counsel Maxi Scherer is speaking on a panel titled, "New Frontiers I: Arbitration in the Age of [Post-pandemic] Technology."

International arbitration now operates in an age of ever accelerating technological advances. Artificial intelligence, blockchain technology and digitalization more generally may change the future of arbitration. The panel will bring together scientists and arbitration lawyers to discuss how these changes may impact arbitration, the challenges that they will bring and how those challenges may be overcome.

WilmerHale Counsel Jonathan Lim is speaking on a panel titled, "Young Practitioners and our Future."

For this panel, young practitioners from various jurisdictions will come together to lead discussions on topics of interest, such as the proliferation of young entrepreneurs in the business of arbitration, young practitioners’ use of technology and the new-age arbitral institutions.

WilmerHale is also proud to co-sponsor the launch of ICCA Report No. 10 “Does a Right to a Physical Hearing Exist in International Arbitration?” at a breakfast on Wednesday, 21 September 2022. Following the presentation of the report, Partner Franz Schwarz will moderate a panel discussion at the launch about the use of remote hearings in a post-pandemic world.

The International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) is a worldwide nongovernmental organization (NGO) devoted to promoting the use and improving the processes of arbitration, conciliation and other forms of resolving international commercial disputes.
