Dr James Dimech DeBono features in Roundtable on International Arbitration

May 29, 2017

We are pleased to announce that Dr James Dimech-DeBono has participated as a panellist on Financier Worldwide’s latest International Arbitration Roundtable on May 24th, 2017.

The Roundtable, which appears in the June 2017 issue of Financier Worldwide magazine, discusses the advantages and challenges of international arbitration, procedural aspects of conducting arbitration, effective arbitration strategies, and the enforcement of arbitral awards.

According to Financier Worldwide: “The international arbitration landscape has been a hive of activity in recent times. Among the ongoing trends are the growing complexity and variety of cases, the increasing use of third-party funding and the continued “litigationising” of the process. As a popular dispute resolution mechanism that gives parties the flexibility to tailor the procedure to their particular needs, demand for international arbitration is expected to rise. For now, it provides a solid forum to resolve international business disputes, and predictability when enforcing awards.”

For the Roundtable, Chris Wilford of the CIArb moderated a discussion between Anthony Theau-Laurent at Accuracy, Robert J.C. Deane at Borden Ladner Gervais LLP, Dr James Dimech-DeBono at CEG Europe, Mike Filla at Conoco Phillips, Serge Gravel at FLV & Associés, Cameron Ford at Rio Tinto, Melis Acuner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, and Marco Tulio Venegas at Von Wobeser y Sierra.

The complete Roundtable is available to read on Financier Worldwide’s website.
