Victoria Associates sponsored the 24th Annual IBA Arbitration Day, that took place last 13 and 14 April, in Lisbon.
More than 500 people and a host of excellent speakers gathered in the Lisbon Congress Centre to discuss issues related to the topic “International arbitration in a divided world: a challenge to the system’s legitimacy”.
The program included panels that discussed:
• The impact of third party funding on investment arbitration
• The implications of sanctions for international arbitration
• Duty of disclosure: self-regulation vs statutory regulation
• Dealing with corruption in international arbitration
The IBA Arbitration Day also included a keynote speech dedicated to the subject “The perils and promise of transparency”.

Victoria Associates sponsored the event, which made us extremely happy and proud, as the photo illustrates (from left to right Ricardo Vigário, Duarte G Henriques, Rita de Carvalho and João Frazão). It speaks loads about the positioning and relevance of Victoria Associates in the arena of international arbitration, as we will explain in a future post.
