Historically, there was uncertainty whether California prohibited out-of-state and foreign lawyers to provide legal services in international commercial arbitrations conducted in California. Such uncertainty created a significant disincentive to the selection of California as an international arbitration venue and prevented the development of a true international arbitration practice in the state.
However, on July 18, 2018, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law SB 766 eliminating the uncertainty bringing California in line with the leading jurisdictions worldwide. The new law goes into effect on January 1, 2019.
Join us for this program that will provide a great overview of SB 766, its historical background, implementation and all the great opportunities it will provide for the legal and ADR industry. We will also explore different marketing opportunities and discuss the newly formed California International Arbitration Council which is working to promote and expand opportunities for international arbitration in California.
Speakers: Malcolm McNeil, Steve K. Andersen, and Gary Benton
