Arbitration Clauses in International Sourcing Transactions

Never underestimate the dangers of a poorly worded international arbitration clause. In business-critical international sourcing transactions, a clever adversary can—and will—exploit imprecise language to either challenge the jurisdiction of the arbitrators in the courts or, at the very least, substantially delay the proceedings, in the process driving up legal fees and jeopardizing a quick resolution.

Please join Mayer Brown Business & Technology Sourcing partner Brad Peterson as he moderates a discussion with Litigation & Dispute Resolution partners B. Ted Howes, Robert Kriss and Mark Stefanini on how to draft an arbitration clause for international sourcing transactions. Topics will include:

  • Advantages of using arbitration clauses in international sourcing transactions
  • Provisions that should be included in every international arbitration clause
  • Expedited arbitration and other options to address technology contract concerns
