Protection of Interests in a Foreign Transaction - Arbitration Mechanisms Seminar

A number of Israeli companies are investing abroad or conducting transactions with foreign entities.

What happens when a crisis occurs regarding the transaction? What are the accepted international mechanisms and norms for settling disputes in international transactions? What alternative dispute resolution should you decide upon in the relevant agreement?

The Seminar will address all of these questions which legal counsel advising in the negotiations involving an international transaction are not always aware of, including the various available alternatives and their respective advantages and disadvantages..

• Arbitration Tribunal for the Israeli - Palestinian conflict, as a case study - offers a unique solution for both Israeli and Palestinian businessmen – the presentation will be made by one of the founders of the institution, Daniel Reisner, a partner at Herzog Fox & Neeman.
