[Webinar held on August 8] "International Arbitration" -Why Japanese companies have "anxiety" about international arbitration


International arbitration is the standard and only hopeful dispute resolution method for international transactions and investments.Not only developed countries and China and South Korea, but also developing countries such as Indonesia and Vietnam, which are non-English countries, have accumulated arbitration know-how and fed back to transactions and negotiations.Only Japanese companies are left behind and confused, leaving Japanese lawyers only able to "intermediate" arbitration.How can we catch up with world standards?The biggest cause is the awkwardness of Japanese lawyers, but Japanese companies also need to change the mechanism of negotiation, contract management, recording, and decision making without being caught up in past successes.Negotiation and contract management are directly linked to arbitration through "document disclosure."Explain and discuss with specific matters that establishing and instilling negotiation and contract management methods that can withstand arbitration is essential for strengthening the competitiveness of Japanese companies.

● 1. What is the question in international arbitration – facts, not laws
● 2. International Arbitration and Contract Negotiation / Management Connection – “Document Disclosure”
● 3. The biggest mountain of international arbitration “Witness Cross-examination” – What is asked in the arbitration hearing?
● 4. "Contract terms," ​​"minutes of negotiations," "recording," and "confidential privileges" in anticipation of international arbitration.
● 5. Discussion
