Digital Dilemmas: Adapting Arbitration to Technological Evolution – A NY Perspective

Emerging technologies have transformed the business and legal landscape, ushering in a new era of opportunities and challenges. As technology companies continue to push the boundaries of innovation, they also find themselves at the forefront of complex legal disputes. In this rapidly evolving environment, it is crucial for companies, legal teams and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) practitioners to stay ahead of the curve to navigate the quickly changing ecosystem of regulations, disputes and technologies. Covering the range from technology services agreements to artificial intelligence, the speakers shed light on the next generation of business opportunities and related dispute resolution. They introduced emerging technologies, provide different perspectives on related challenges and share practical strategies for effective dispute resolution.

Topics covered included:

  • How technological developments are giving rise to new substantive disputes and creating new challenges for cross-border disputes.
  • How to balance transparency and confidentiality in technology arbitrations.
  • How to comply with an increasingly complex global regulatory framework.
  • How to best introduce procedural efficiency and avoid enforcement challenges for arbitration in the technology services sector.
