    ArbitralWomen Event – Melbourne Arbitration Week

    It was a pleasure to moderate the panel session focused on commerciality in arbitration for both clients and practitioners and to hear the sound advice from Pip Murphy from Vannin, Jo Delaney from Baker & McKenzie and my fellow New Yorker, John-Henry Eversgerd, from FTI.
    Thank you to Erika Williams for organizing a great ArbitralWomen event and to Bronwyn Lincoln and Corrs Chambers Westgarth for graciously hosting it during Arbitration Week in Melbourne.
