  • AHH S3E01 - Crypto Disputes: To Arbitrate or Litigate?

    A day with no crypto news? 

    Season 3, episode 1: Crypto Disputes: To Arbitrate or Litigate?

    It’s almost impossible for a day to go by these days without some sort of a dramatic news on crypto. Whether it’s fraud or theft within the exchange or theft among the participants of the market, disputes are an inevitable.

    So let’s ask the age old question, in the “new world”: arbitration or litigation?

    Join us in the first episode of 2023 when Svenja and Sneha will speak with Noor of #Kadhims Ltd. about crypto disputes and nuances in relation to those such as copy right claims and smart contracts containing arbitration clauses.

    The Zoom attendees can dial in (with or without video as you like) and we will convert the #ArbitrationHappyHour into a #podcast (only the audio file) later, so the content won’t be lost.

    🥷 Season 2, Episode 13: Combatting Guerrilla Tactics in International Arbitration

    🥷 The above example is, hopefully 😬😆, extreme and rare but we all have in some shape or form and in various degrees experienced disruptive tactics in international arbitration proceedings. Bribery, subordinations, ambushes, sabotage, and intimidation are just to name a few. 😏
