Speaking engagement: Arbitral case management in the digital economy

March 29, 2023
SciencesPo Law School

Lars Markert delivered a presentation entitled “Arbitral case management in the digital economy” at “UNCITRAL’s Dispute Resolution in the Digital Economy Initiative” at Sciences Po Law School in Paris, France on March 29, 2023. The event was organized by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law and was a part of Paris Arbitration Week. Lars explored the enabling function of digital means in arbitral case management. He explained that it can lead to greater efficiency but also warned about its disruptive aspects, which requires the active preservation of equal treatment and the right to be heard.



Lars’ practice is focused on commercial and investment arbitration. He has particular expertise in contentious proceedings involving post-M&A, commercial, manufacturing, construction, and distribution matters, in areas such as life sciences, automotive, and energy. Lars also deals with cases involving governments, and has advised foreign investors and sovereign states on issues of foreign direct investment and public international law, including related negotiations and investor-state disputes. He has been involved in more than 50 international arbitrations as counsel and arbitrator under the arbitration rules of institutions such as the ICC, DIS, SAC, NAI, ICDR, KCAB, JCAA, SIAC, and ICSID, as well as under the UNCITRAL Rules.
