The NY Branch and NYIAC will be hosting a programme on 18 November 2020, entitled ‘Non-Signatures before and after arbitration’ where a panel of thought leaders and experienced practitioners will discuss the role of non-signatories in the arbitral process and in post-award enforcement proceedings.

Thevenin FCIArb (International Arbitrator and Mediator and Adjunct Professor of Law).

The co-chairs of the 2020 NYAW Organizing Committee are Stephanie Cohen FCIArb (NY Branch Chair-elect) and Jeffrey Rosenthal (Partner, Cleary Gottlieb, member of the NYIAC Executive Committee). The 2020 NYAW Organizing Committee includes Thomas Halket C.Arb FCIArb, (CIArb's immediate past President), Richard L. Mattiaccio C.Arb FCIArb, (NY Branch Chair, 2019 NYAW co-chair), and Steven Skulnik FCIArb (NY Branch Program Committee Chair).
