  • About this event

    With the increasing likelihood that, due to the pandemic, arbitrators and claimants will encounter more cases with non-participating respondents, join us for an interactive roundtable discussion addressing practical issues and challenges for arbitrators and counsel arising out of these cases.


    A panel of seasoned practitioners will both identify various thorny procedural and substantive issues presented by cases with non-participating respondents, and provide practical guidance for counsel and arbitrators when presenting or evaluating evidence, as well as measures that should be considered or taken to balance the due process rights of non-participating respondents with the need to move the arbitration forward and render an enforceable award.


    This event is part of USCIB/ICC USA’s Sole Practitioner Group “Nuts & Bolts Arbitrator Series,” and supported by CIArbNY. The roundtable discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.


    Speakers include:


    • Claudia Salomon, FCIArb (moderator), Vice President, ICC International Court of Arbitration; Partner, Latham & Watkins LLP, New York
    • Juliet Blanch, Member, ICC International Court of Arbitration; Arbitrator, Arbitration Chambers, London and Hong Kong
    • Lawrence S. Schaner, FCIArb, Arbitrator, Schaner Dispute Resolution LLC, Chicago
    • John M. Townsend, Partner, Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP, Washington, DC
    • Melanie Van Leeuwen, Partner, Derains & Gharavi, Paris


    Brief opening and closing remarks will be given by Marek Krasula (Regional Director for North America, ICC International Court of Arbitration), Peter Sherwin (Partner, Proskauer Rose LLP and Chair of USCIB/ICC USA’s Arbitration Committee), and Matthew Draper, FCIArb (Partner, Draper & Draper LLC and Chair of USCIB/ICC USA Arbitration Committee's Sole Practitioner Subcommittee).
