Three major arbitration associations have announced this week the first arbitration week to be held in Paris (24-28 April)

The event will bring together the international arbitration community to meet, discuss, share ideas and continue to shape the future of the community. The three co-organising committees are:

Yasmin Mohammad, senior counsel at Vannin Capital is delighted to play a central role on the Paris Arbitration Week (PAW) Organisation Committee together with fellow Parisians:

  • Marie Danis, partner at August & Debouzy and board member of Paris, the Home of the International Arbitration;
  • José Feris, deputy Secretary General of the ICC International Court of Arbitration in Paris; and
  • Clément Fouchard, associate, Linklaters and member of the Bureau of the Comité Français de l'Arbitrage.

"As one of the main and preferred seats of international arbitration, it seemed an obvious decision to host an event in Paris for our large number of practitioners and our colleagues from abroad who travel regularly to Paris for hearings and meetings," said Yasmin Mohammad. "The week will be hosted by a range of institutions, including Vannin and law firms, who recognise the importance of continuing to promote and celebrate International Arbitration as the preferred method of dispute resolution in Paris."

The ICC will commence the exciting week by hosting the 1st ICC European Conference on International Arbitration on 24 April, followed by the inaugural PAW Opening Cocktail event hosted by the three organising committees.

In addition to other events, Vannin is also sponsoring and speaking at the Paris edition of the Global Pound Conference, held during PAW on 26 April. Yasmin Mohammad will join a panel to discuss how the dispute resolution process can be improved.
