November Events 

 

 ICC's Annual Miami conference

 International Commercial Arbitration in Latin America

 

3-5 November, Mandarin Oriental hotel, Miami

  

 ICC's annual Miami conference provides an indispensable update on developments in the region and is the most important gathering for the Latin American arbitration community. Not only does it offer a line-up of top-class speakers, topical discussions and relevant news, but also an excellent opportunity to network. The conference attracts approximately 400 participants representing about 30 nationalities.  Sessions this years will cover the following perspectives : Judicial; Academic; Business; "Public"; "Alternative"; Ethical and Procedural.

 

This year the conference will be preceded by an advanced level training on "drafting enforceable awards" will take place on Sunday 3 November. Focusing on what can be referred to as the most prominent duty of an arbitrator, participants will learn the best practices pertaining to drafting awards and the ways of maximizing their enforceability. Accordingly, the training will focus on the procedural as well as formal requirements, and cover the issue of the necessary substantive accuracy of the award.

 

Nov. 8, 2013 - CABA's Legal Aspects of Doing Business In The Americas Conference, Co-Sponsored by ILS

 

Doing business in Latin America is not an option - Miami's geographic location, coupled with its diverse population and its historical ties to the region, makes Latin America the logical target for expansion and growth for Miami's businesses, however, successfully navigating the complex regulatory, legal, market, and cultural waters of doing business in Latin America is no small task. Whether you are an experienced general counsel at a multinational company seeking to expand its market share, or the startup entrepreneur looking to tap into the region, the CABA Legal Aspects of Doing Business in the Americas Conference will feature an exceptional roster of legal practitioners, academics, and corporate counsel that will give you the information that you need to accomplish your business goals. This all-day conference, which will be held on November 8, 2013 at the Intercontinental Miami, simply cannot be missed!

In the News

On September 24, 2013, Robert J. Kuntz of Devine Goodman Rasco Watts-FitzGerald & Wells, P.A.  was a panelist at the Eleventh Judicial Circuit's First Civility and Professionalism Action Summit at the Newman Alumni Center at the University of Miami. More than a group discussion or seminar, this was a working summit of judges and representatives from local voluntary bar associations working together to create solutions to issues of incivility and unprofessionalism in the legal profession.
