Why Arbitrate

This session will explore what is driving the growing global popularity of arbitration as a preferred option for dispute resolution. Many professionals combine successful litigation and arbitration practices while others focus exclusively on one or the other. Can lawyers in the Caribbean region be dispute resolution lawyers effectively handling both litigation and arbitration? What skill sets and mindsets are required for success as a lawyer in arbitration? How can lawyers in this region get there?
