The Young Members Group was pleased to invite two guest speakers, Paul Taggart FCIArb, & Olena Gulyanytska FCIArb.
The topic of discussion revolved around the challenges faced by counsels and arbitrators during the arbitration proceedings and the enforcement of an award in difficult jurisdictions. With years of experience in the construction industry, Paul Taggart shared his practices of resolving disputes from places such as Africa and China. Though his experience, he was able to highlight the importance of drafting a clear arbitration agreement and a review of the local laws as a necessary step in avoiding disputes in the future.
In addition to sharing her experiences in resolving disputes, Olena Gulyanytska presented the Business Arbitration Scheme (BAS) that has been developed by CIArb as a way of providing simple, low cost resolution of disputes between £5000 and £100,000 and encouraged all Fellows to get involved in the Scheme.
CIArb’s European Branch Young Members Group thanks all the attendees for a great evening and cocktail reception and looks forward to seeing you all at the next event.
