International Litigation Strategy: Tactics for Today
Tuesday, October 15th, 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm        Harvest Suite, 1st Floor

Cross-border disputes present special challenges for litigation strategy: How to obtain key documents in the files of a third party in another country? How to deal with parallel proceedings in multiple countries? What ethics rules apply? When to arbitrate rather than litigate? How to address criminal proceedings that cross borders? How to litigate in specialized international tribunals like the ECHR? This panel will draw upon the expertise of the authors featured in the second edition of the Section publication International Litigation Strategies and Practice to explore these topics in an interactive roundtable.

Program Chair & Moderator: Bart Legum, Dentons, Paris, France

Ted Edelman, Sullivan & Cromwell, New York, New York
