First CCIAG Conference

Venue: Centre de Conférence de Paris Trocadéro
112 avenue Kléber, 75016 Paris

The CCIAG is organizing the First CCIAG conference jointly with the ICC Institute for World Business Law. This conference will address the burning topic of the choice of arbitrator. A highly selective panel of speakers will address the concerns of corporate counsels as to the legitimacy of arbitrators in the paradoxical context of a globalized arbitration market devoid of  transparent and straightforward access to the necessary data to make that crucial choice.

Please note that the Conference is on invitation only.
