Int’l Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Canada Conference (ArbitralWomen & INSOL)

International Arbitration in the COVID-19 Environment and Beyond

  • ICC Canada and ArbitralWomen: Virtual Proceedings – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (90 mins)

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted traditional methods of administering, hearing and adjudicating arbitrations. On the one hand, this disruption has led to (arguably overdue) innovations in how arbitrations are conducted. On the other hand, it has exposed the relative infancy of today’s digital infrastructure to deliver an adjudicative experience truly comparable to in-person proceedings. The panel will discuss best practices for virtual proceedings and what we can expect in the post-COVID-19 era

Moderator: Louise Barrington, Arbitration Place (Toronto)/ Aculex Transnational (Hong Kong)

PanelistsAlexis Mourre, President, ICC Court (Paris); John Judge, Arbitrator, Int-Arb (London) / Arbitration Place (Toronto); Yasmine Lahlou, Partner, Chaffetz Lindsey (New York); Sandra Gonzalez, Partner, Ferrere (Montevideo)



  • ICC Canada and INSOL International: International Arbitration and Insolvency Proceedings in the Wake of COVID-19 (90 mins)

Insolvencies are expected to dramatically increase as businesses try to survive the effects of COVID-19. A growing number of insolvencies will likely have an effect on international arbitrations, adding complexities in matters of capacity, procedure, and enforcement. The panel will discuss best practices in addressing the intersect of international arbitration and insolvency
