Topic: Careers in Arbitration: An International Perspective

This event is part of the AMINZ-ICCA International Arbitration Day being hosted in Queenstown, New Zealand on April 19-20, 2018 and will be immediately prior to the AMINZ-ICCA International Arbitration Day launch.

“The panel will feature international arbitration specialists from New Zealand and around the world, including Sir David Williams QC (Bankside Chambers), Tim Lindsay (Lindsay Litigation and Arbitration), Dr. Anna Kirk (Bankside Chambers), James Herbert (Shearman & Sterling, Paris) and Katie Chung (Norton Rose Fulbright, Singapore). It will be moderated by Nicola Swan (Debevoise & Plimpton, London).”

This event is a rare opportunity for practitioners to participate in a career development dis-cussion with international arbitration specialists in an informal setting. The panel discussion will cover career development and advice for those hoping to practice international arbitra-tion, with plenty of opportunity for direct interaction with the panelists. It is aimed at practi-tioners below partner level.
