The Swedish-Baltic Arbitration Forum 2016 will focus on a panoply of current topics in commercial and investment arbitration on the Lithuanian scene and internationally. A panel including internationally active arbitrators, in-house and outside counsel and members of the SCC Arbitration Institute and academia will discuss the role of the SCC in investment arbitration and matters relevant to investment as well as commercial arbitration. Although nowadays fundamental concepts of commercial and investment arbitration are harmonized to a large extent, practically important differences exist between ICSID and non-ICSID investment arbitration and between national arbitration laws. Some of these differences will be highlighted.
The Forum will also offer an interactive format to allow participants to address matters of particular concern to users and practitioners. The program will give emphasis to practical aspects of the arbitral process, such as ways to achieve savings in terms of time and costs in the conduct of arbitral proceedings. The program will also include an introduction to the new SCC 2017 Arbitration Rules.
