Panel Discussion: Strategic considerations in deciding whether to challenge an arbitrator based on lack of independence: Global Perspectives

Hosted by Davis Polk, in partnership with Paris Arbitration Week, Pinheiro Neto, Marval O’Farrell Mairal, and CPR, the panel drew on the experience of practitioners from around the world, and from an arbitral institution, to discuss how to deal with important questions of impartiality and independence, both on a practical and strategic level:
