Mayer Brown is delighted to host an evening seminar featuring guest speakers from the most prominent and active arbitration institutions on the African continent.

As Africa’s importance as an investment destination grows unabated, and intra-African commerce continues to expand in value and breadth, international arbitration remains as important as ever as a key means by which to effectively resolve African commercial disputes.

Against this backdrop, facilities and support for arbitration in Africa are growing in scope and sophistication, as reflected by the increasing number of institutions active on the African arbitration landscape. A sound understanding of this range of institutions and the services which they offer is crucial for those seeking to effectively manage risk when doing business on the African continent.

Please join us for an evening of informative debate and discussion, where we will explore key developments, issues and considerations, with views and perspectives from the arbitration institutions themselves.
