Albert Bates, Jr., a partner in the Construction Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton LLP and leader of the group’s international construction arbitration team, will be speaking at iLaw2020, the Florida Bar International Law Section's global forum on international law. iLaw2020 will take place on Friday, February 28, 2020 at the JW Marriott Marquis in Downtown Miami. The programming will feature the international litigation track, the business transactions track and the International Centre for Dispute Resolution's international arbitration track.
Mr. Bates will be joining the panel discussion titled "International Construction Arbitration Mega-Projects – Trends, Developments, and Best Practices – Understanding the Issues, Challenges, Cultural Differences, and Conflict Management Options."
This session will explore the various issues and challenges when in an international construction arbitration. What is the cultural impact on the process of the interplay between the common law and civil law traditions in viewing an international construction dispute? The impact of civil law and common law, presentation of evidence, witness examination, experts, written submissions, privilege concerns, and the allocation of costs. Challenges may also arise when dealing with language and logistical issues and mediating with foreign parties.
Pepper Hamilton is a proud sponsor of iLaw2020.
