Arbitration is, in many countries, regarded as the preferred method for adjudicating intra-corporate disputes. In other countries, some obstacles can still be found for those companies willing to include an arbitration clause in their bylaws. On one side, many are the advantages of arbitration over court litigation when intra-corporate disputes are at stake. On the other side, however, arbitration raises several issues as regards the arbitrability of (all) intra-corporate disputes, the protection of minority shareholders, confidentiality and third parties’ rights. One outstanding keynote speaker and 10 young professionals coming from the four corners of Europe will discuss the pros and cons of arbitrating intra-corporate disputes.
The ICC YAF Conference will be an ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration, and to enrich their network in the region.
