BUCHAREST ARBITRATION DAYS - 2021 | Towards a reform in arbitration - a particular view on construction disputes -- June 3rd and 4th

04 Iunie 2021   |   BizLawyer

Organised by: The Court of International Commercial Arbitration attached to The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Romania and Wolters Kluwer Romania.

 
 

For many years, statistics have indicated that approximately 50% of the commercial arbitrations from Romania have derived from construction contracts, and a similar share exists also in other jurisdictions from Eastern Europe.

From another perspective, 2020 and the pandemic context could not but affect also international arbitration, which has switched to the online almost instantaneously, has digitalized and virtualized with astonishing speed.

The second BARD edition should have taken place in 2020, but it was, like many other similar events, cancelled. Very much like international arbitration, we have adapted to the unfriendly sanitary context, and this edition takes place as possible, namely fully online. Perhaps for this reason, but, certainly, also because we are hoping, like everybody, to go back, as quick as possible, to the good old times, that BARD 2021 will not focus on the issues of immediate impact of the pandemics on international arbitration. If it were not fully online, BARD 2021 would almost ignore the pandemics, because we are looking forward with hope, to the future of arbitration.



Thus, the keyword of BARD 2021 is reform. The general topic suggests that we are focusing on reforms, but it also gives the due importance to the construction area.


The keynote speech is an exceptional and highly topical one, as it will approach the much-talked-about and long-awaited ISDS reform. Further, an investment arbitration panel and 4 dedicated commercial arbitration panels will analyze hot issues, trends, news, reform and directions concerning infrastructure investment disputes, arbitrability, IBA 2020 revised rules on taking of evidence, as well as disclosure and conflict of interests.

Last but not least, a panel will analyze with endorsed speakers, from all possible angles, the specific problems of building a career in investment arbitration, with a special focus on job opportunities in this field.
