International Arbitration in and for the Caribbean

11 September 2015
Organizer: Debevoise & Plimpton; Association of Caribbean Corporate Counsel
Location: Kingston, Jamaica

As the Caribbean continues to grow as a centre for foreign investment and transnational commercial activity, international arbitration is emerging as a preferred form of dispute resolution in the region. At the same time, international and regional arbitration rules and practice continue to evolve rapidly. Companies, Governments, and counsel in the Caribbean must increasingly deal with the many risks, challenges, and opportunities raised by international arbitration, particularly where sophisticated international parties are involved.

This one-day seminar, designed for corporate and government counsel and senior personnel, law firm practitioners, and arbitration professionals throughout the Caribbean, will focus on key trends and solutions for all stages of the international arbitration process. Topics will include:

  • Negotiating Arbitration Clauses with International Counterparties: Key Considerations for Caribbean Counsel
  • Sovereigns and the Arbitral Process: Factors to Consider in Arbitration Involving Government
  • International Arbitration in the Caribbean: What is the State of Play?
  • Making Arbitration Work for Your Business: Practical Issues and Best Practices
