Overview

Presented by Young ITA, Co-sponsored by Mayer Brown LLP and Flores Rueda Abogados

The ALI Restatement on International Commercial and Investor State Arbitration identifies the role of the courts in a commercial arbitral proceeding, including enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate, the arbitral proceedings, as well as in post-award relief. The Restatement also addresses how principles governing U.S. court involvement in investor–State arbitration may vary from certain principles generally applicable to international commercial arbitration.  Please join us for a roundtable discussion exploring the latest developments regarding the Restatement, as well as the latest arbitration developments in California.  Panelists will provide insight as to the process of drafting the Restatement, its key provisions, as well as latest developments in California law.
