Foley Hoag LLP associate Patricia Cruz Trabanino participated in “Oral Skills and Techniques in International Arbitration,” an event organized by the International Chamber of Commerce – Young Arbitrators’ Forum (ICC YAF), on October 8, 2018 in San Jose, Costa Rica. The conference served as a forum for lawyers, corporate counsel, arbitrators, professionals, academics and students who are interested in domestic and international arbitration in Latin America.

The program included a presentation of the theoretical techniques used to cross-examine witnesses, followed by a mock hearing, where Cruz Trabanino conducted a cross-interrogation of a fact witness and discussed the techniques she used.

She represents clients in arbitrations initiated under international investment agreements before the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, and also represents sovereign States in U.S. federal court proceedings and in advisory matters concerning international law.
