Brazilian arbitration chapter

The English Supreme Court case of Halliburton vs Chubb has highlighted how far arbitrators need to go when disclosing facts relating to their impartiality.

Our seminar will discuss the arbitrators´duty of disclosure from an English and Brazilian law perspective. In doing so, our speakers will visit the perception of impartiality under both legal systems and discuss the cultural differences in convention and acceptable conduct. Further, our panel will analyse the impact of disclosure and impartiality of arbitrators for commercial entities involved in arbitrations.
