Energy Community’s Dispute Resolution and Negotiation Centre hosts its first “Coffee, Cake and Dispute Resolution” event

18 April 2019

Yesterday, arbitration lawyers, energy specialists and members of the academia came together not only for the traditional Viennese coffee and Apfelstrudel, but also for interesting debates.  Yas Banifatemi, co-head of the International Arbitration practice at Shearman&Sterling, shared her experience on managing parallel arbitration, mediation and court proceedings.  Yas offered the audience an overview of applicable rules, laws, bilateral and multilateral agreements, a critical analysis of the current system, as well as optimistic views on how the system will improve in the future.
