ICC Institute of World Business Law to host its 40th Annual Conference – ICC – International Chamber of Commerce

This year’s edition of the ICC Institute of World Business Law Annual Conference will gather international business practitioners, legal experts and academics virtually to discuss the Overriding Mandatory Rules and Compliance in International Arbitration.

Economic sanctions, exchange, and export control regulations adopted by countries and regional organisations are increasingly intersecting with arbitral proceedings around the world. While the overriding nature of these rules is unquestionable for certain territories, it’s unclear whether these same rules are relevant – even binding – for international arbitral tribunals outside these designated territories.

With scarce guidance available, the world’s leading arbitrators, counsel, business leaders, and policymakers will ­meet virtually at the ICC Institute’s Annual Conference to discuss and debate the ramifications of overriding mandatory rules for arbitral tribunals. Participants will consider the conflicting expectations of compliance and whether overriding mandatory rules are relevant for arbitral tribunals sitting in other jurisdictions or designated territories.

From keynote addresses to panel sessions, this year’s Annual Conference will offer participants with an excellent opportunity to hear insights from world-class legal experts, engage in topical discussions, and network with other professionals. This year’s keynote speaker will be Carter Burwell, Counselor, Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (TFI), United States Department of the Treasury.

As part of the event, the ICC Institute will publish the Overriding Mandatory Rules and Compliance in International Arbitration (Dossier XIX of the Institute series). Prepared by several of the participating speakers, the Overriding Mandatory Rules and Compliance in International Arbitration will be made available to participants
