On September 23, 2021, at 12:30-14:30 CEST, Davis Polk will host a virtual event in partnership with Paris Arbitration Week. Davis Polk partners Frances Bivens and Martin Rogers and counsel Jonathan Chang and Alexandre Vermynck, along with arbitrator Charles Moxley and testifying expert Mustafa Hadi (managing director at BRG), will be among the speakers on Davis Polk’s panel, “Tales from the virtual battlefield: Perspectives of the arbitrator, advocate and expert witness.”

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, the use of virtual hearings has increased, spurring arbitration centers and national legislators to set out best practices for virtual hearings. However, despite best attempts to establish governing principles, the nascent regulation remains incomplete. Therefore, in many respects, it is left to the arbitral tribunal and the parties to make their virtual hearings successful.

This panel will draw on the experience of an arbitrator, advocates and an expert witnesses to discuss, as a practical matter, how to optimize the effectiveness of virtual hearings.

This event is intended for legal, financial and accounting professionals. Not open to the press.
