Programme

8.30: Welcome coffee and registration

9.00: Chair’s welcome

Jakob Ragnwaldh, Mannheimer Swartling

9.10: Session one: Opening statements – a missed opportunity?

Arbitration hearings almost invariably start with opening statements, but how are these best delivered? Do counsel make the most of the opportunity they present?

Questions the panel are expected to discuss include:
- Short summaries vs detail – do summaries suffice, on the basis that the arbitrators have read all of the documents? Or should statements present the written evidence in the case?
- “Skeleton arguments” – always a necessary addition?
- Best practice – in terms of using PowerPoint slides, core bundles, etc.

Sophie Lamb, Latham & Watkins

14.00: Session three: What makes a good arbitrator?

Arbitrators frequently comment on how counsel should improve, yet rarely is there an opportunity for constructive feedback in the other direction. Here is your chance to see the shoe on the other foot. What do arbitrators do well, what could they do better, and what qualities make an arbitrator truly stand out?

Drawing on their collective “war storiesˮ, the panel will come up with a list of helpful pointers for arbitrators to bear in mind.
