Please join HIALSA for a lunch talk on the basics of international arbitration. Two of the most recognized thought leaders in the field, Professor Emmanuel Gaillard and Dr. Yas Banifatemi, will give an introduction on the fundamentals of international arbitration, and their view on what it means to work in this field of practice. This talk will be of particular interest to those who are keen to learn about international arbitration, but have not had much experience in this field.

Professor Gaillard founded and heads Shearman & Sterling’s International Arbitration practice. He is a universally recognized leading authority and a star practitioner in the fields of both commercial and investment treaty arbitration. He has advised and represented companies, States and State-owned entities in hundreds of international arbitrations.

Dr. Banifatemi co-heads Shearman & Sterling’s International Arbitration practice. She is also a Vice-President of the ICC International Court of Arbitration. She has been repeatedly praised and described as “one of the best technicians in the international investment arbitration field” and “an outstanding lawyer in every possible respect”.
