Conference to discuss international business, litigation

An international law conference focusing on global collaboration and foreign litigation, while also offering valuable networking opportunities to participants, is scheduled for later this month.

The American Bar Association’s (ABA) Section of International Law is presenting its 2014 North America Forum Nov. 17-18 in Vancouver, B.C. The conference has been divided into two “tracks,” called Collaborating Globally and Doing Business Within the Region, with five panels to be presented under each theme.

Co-chairperson Nikiforos Iatrou, partner with WeirFoulds LLP in Toronto, says one of the most valuable parts of the conference is the opportunity for attendees to meet international colleagues.

The conference will cover off topics like cross-border ethics in a digital age; global litigation and connections to Canada; the challenges of defending foreign litigation; litigation in offshore jurisdictions; developing the energy trade between North America and Asia, and more.

This year marks the introduction of the ABA’s regional forums format, says Iatrou. Overall, he adds, many of the panels acknowledge the international aspects of doing business and of litigating, while also speaking to new issues litigators are facing today.
