What Conditions Should Exist for International Arbitration to Thrive in an Emerging Technology Hubs?
December 11, 2021 | 6:00 to 9:00 pm White & Case LLP, Southeast Financial Center, 200 South Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 4900, Miami, Florida 33133 New technologies are—by definition—borderless and poised to permeate and have a direct impact on all aspects of modern life. Interestingly, the industries that produce new technologies are generally clustered in certain geographical areas where favorable conditions exist to promote innovation, creativity, business entrepreneurship and cultural acceptance. From the famed Silicon Valley to cities like Singapore, London, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, New York, and Shanghai; technology hubs owe their success to both individual advantages and certain shared features such as government support, the presence of robust scientific and academic institutions, an active private sector, and a highly qualified legal community. This roundable sponsored by the Miami International Arbitration Society (MIAS) and the Silicon Valley Arbitration and Mediation Center (SVAMC) and hosted by White & Case LLP, will feature several legal experts hailing from technology companies, law firms, and arbitral institutions from different parts of the world to share their views about the ideal dispute resolution infrastructure that should exist in an emerging technology hub. The roundtable will be followed by a cocktail reception. This event is FREE and open to the public, but registration is required. Space is limited due to health and safety regulations.
