CLASH OF CULTURES – EXPLORING THE IMPACT OF CULTURE ON
ADVOCACY IN INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION


Dear Colleague

We are pleased to invite you to a joint event with ACICA 45, for a panel discussion in relation to ‘A Clash of Cultures – Exploring the Impact of Culture on Advocacy in International Arbitration’.

One of the most intriguing aspects of a career in international arbitration is the opportunity to engage in dynamic work that traverses international borders. Often, this statement holds true not only in relation to the underlying dispute, but also the backgrounds of the various participants to the proceedings.

The arbitral tribunal, the parties, counsel and experts more commonly comprise a diverse mix of individuals from civil law and common law backgrounds - different jurisdictions each with distinct legal, political and cultural norms - than is the case in litigation. In these circumstances, it is perhaps inevitable that a range of cross-cultural considerations will arise in the advocacy process. Those factors may influence the manner in which the parties present their cases (e.g. the style of the witness examinations) and may result in miscommunications, particularly where language barriers are present. 

Please join us and panellist, James Allsop - Arbitrator, Edwina Kwan – Partner King & Wood Mallesons Sydney, Amanda Lees – Partner King & Wood Mallesons Singapore and Boxun Yin - Banco Chambers for an engaging discussion on how to navigate these and other cross-cultural issues in advocacy in international arbitration.
