Current International Arbitration Practice and Challenges for Japanese Corporations (International Arbitration Practice Workshop Series – Part 2)

In our first webinar (held on March 3, 2021), we discussed the current international arbitration practice in Japan and the pros and cons of using international arbitration as opposed to litigation in the United States.

  • Panel Discussion
    • Document Exchange
      • International Arbitration and U.S. Litigation
      • Civil Law and Common Law
    • Witness Examination
      • What is cross-examination?

  • Q&As
    • Selecting the seat of arbitration
    • How to use international arbitration for different kinds of disputes (cases requiring technical expertise or cases involving confidential matters, etc.)
    • Overview of key elements when drafting an arbitration clause
