Expert Summit

 Event starts: October 31st, 2019

 Location:  Jakarta, Noble House 27th Floor

No Catch is Coincidence

Undeniably, arbitration has increased tremendously in its complexity in recent years. The once simple trade disputes, between merchants not requiring more than a solid understanding of the underlying law, have been replaced by matters in which all stakeholders are expected to possess specialist knowledge. Unsurprisingly, these trends are proportionate to an extensive increase in the use of expert witnesses in international arbitrations. Not only are experts utilized in a variety of ways and in variety of fields, but they are also now used in the majority of large cases.

Within this 1.5 days, 6-session Summit, arbitration practitioners and experts from across East Asia will explore the use of experts from the counsel, institutional and arbitrator perspectives. In addition, there will be three sessions largely related to the construction industry (delay, quantity and damages). Our Summit is a CAN’T MISS event for anyone doing arbitration in Indonesia and for those involved in the construction industry in any capacity.
