In times of turmoil, peaceful and efficient settlement of commercial and investment disputes remain essential for international business.

Cross-border transactions and international trade require swift and efficient solutions should a dispute arise.

Commercial and investor-state arbitration should answer those requirements by adapting accordingly. Arbitration institutions are now adapting their rules and organizations to meet those standards, including through expedited rules and online case management.

Together with VIAC – the Vienna International Arbitral Centre of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, we understand that high quality arbitration services provide the necessary assurance.

Arbitration in our part of the world seems to be most applicable to disputes concerning cross border transactions and investments.

Let’s talk about the future of modern arbitration, about its challenges and business opportunities in the CEE region. Let’s discuss the practical aspects of including an arbitration clause in your contracts.

Topics for discussion include:

  • What is arbitration – and specifically how arbitration in the CEE region is (not) different from arbitration on a global level
  • VIAC as a bridge between East and West
  • Why arbitration is a perfect option for cross-border transactions and investments /adaptable rules & practical information / support for ongoing business
  • Legal Project Management – the new tool to manage relationships between users / law firms / arbitration institutions
  • The Role of the Vienna Investment Rules amidst the the investor-State arbitration crisis

Followed by a Q&A session.


  • Marek Jeżewski – Partner, Kochański & Partners
  • Dr. Nikolaus Pitkowitz – President, VIAC
  • Magdalena Papiernik – Partner, Kochański & Partners
