Foley Hoag Counsel Christina Hioureas to Moderate NY State Bar Assoc. Seminar on Parallel Proceedings in Arbitration

April 12, 2019

Foley Hoag LLP counsel and United Nations practice chair Christina Hioureas will moderate “Seeing Double: Parallel Proceedings in Arbitration,” a seminar taking place at the firm’s New York office on April 16, 2019.

This event, presented by the New York State Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section’s International Dispute Resolution Committee, will focus on challenging issues related to parallel proceedings before another tribunal or a national court. 

Hioureas will lead a discussion with attorneys to address complex procedural questions that can arise where an arbitral tribunal is confronted with parallel proceedings before another tribunal or a national court in the same or a closely related dispute. The panelists will address approaches to inconsistent judgements; what happens when the tribunal deems the other proceeding to be abusive; and whether the tribunal can control the parties from participating in the other proceedings. Panel participants include other practitioners and arbitrators. 

As a member of the firm's International Litigation & Arbitration Department, Hioureas represents States, private and State-owned entities, and individuals on international disputes and public international law matters, and advises States on matters before the United Nations and its bodies.
