PARIS 11 APRIL 2018

INAUGURAL EVENTS SERIES
PARIS EDITION

BREAKFAST DURING THE PARIS ARBITRATION WEEK
HELD ON WEDNESDAY 11 APRIL 2018, AT THE INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL

In conjunction with the Paris Arbitration Week 2018
and with the generous support of McDermott Will & Emery

The Inaugural Events Series provides an opportunity for exchange with the arbitration community about the Delos approach to arbitration and its emphasis on time and cost efficiency, combined with quality and flexibility.

In Paris, we put the spotlight on the powers of the arbitrators. The Delos Rules of Arbitration require arbitrators to take a proactive approach to the resolution of disputes, and make broad powers available to them for this purpose. The Rules further provide that disputes must be dealt with fairly, expeditiously and at proportionate cost. Professors Pierre Mayer and Maxi Scherer explored the limits to arbitrators’ exercise of their powers.

The event took place as follows, from 9 to 11am, and a few photos of the event follow:
