Upcoming seminar: how to prepare for an online arbitration

“Although the basic concepts of the hearing are the same, there are several small adjustments that can be made to the presentation of the case that will greatly increase the impact of your message”, says Kristoffer Löf, Partner at Mannheimer Swartling. He is one of several experienced and distinguished speakers at the upcoming SCC half day seminar focusing on online management of arbitral proceedings.

Online arbitrations are the new reality of arbitral practitioners, putting new requirements, but also removing barriers, reducing costs and environmental footprint of arbitral proceedings.

 We are in a period of technological transformation. In a way, there are similarities to when television first started to be used to air political debates. As Nixon learned in his debates with Kennedy, it is the person who understands and makes use of the new medium that will get the message through most effectively. The same is true to arbitration in this technical transformation – although the basic concepts of the hearing are the same, there are several small adjustments that can be made to the presentation of the case that will greatly increase the impact of your message. I look forward to discussing these issues and to share lessons learned from my own 90+ days in remote hearings in the past two years, says Kristoffer Löf.
