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.
