MIAMI— Jorge A. Mestre will speak on a panel entitled “NYIAC & New York City Bar Virtual Talks The Great Tension: Electronic Discovery in International Arbitration Is It Here to Stay?” at a New York International Arbitration Center Event on Thursday, June 24, at 6:30 p.m. EST.
The program compares the impact of electronically stored information on arbitration across civil and common law jurisdictions. The panel focuses on topics including efforts to curtail “fishing expeditions,” the use of 28 USC 1782 to obtain electronic discovery, the role of soft law, and the amended and evolving rules of arbitral institutions to create a baseline uniform approach to disputes implicating electronic discovery.
