Golden Opportunities for The Golden State: The Rise of International Arbitration in California
By Eric Z. Chang
On July 18, Governor Brown signed into law Senate Bill 766, which updates California’s rules permitting out of state and foreign attorneys to appear in international commercial arbitration cases seated in California. Such rules are commonly referred to as "fly in, fly out" ("FIFO") rules. California now boasts one of the most inclusive FIFO rules in the world. The new law is squarely aimed at increasing California’s appeal as a destination for international commercial arbitration and capturing a larger share of this critical market.
