    Join K&L Gates for a Fall Soiree:
    Saving Time and Cost with Early Dismissal of Claims and Defenses? A New York Perspective
    Wednesday, September 12, 2018 | 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
    Early granting or dismissal of claims and defenses has long been avoided in the context of international arbitration. Has international arbitration started to shift and begun to accept early dismissal and/or summary judgment, i.e. an arbitration without a hearing on the merits? Numerous Rules and Guidelines issued by the AAA-ICDR, ICSID, CPR, SIAC, SCC and ICC Court of Arbitration over the past 12 years have marked the entry into force of these concepts in institutional arbitration rules.

    Please join K&L Gates LLP for a brief program discussing insights on this topic followed by a reception on their 33rd floor outdoor patio.
