Sun Aug 01 16:24:38 EDT 2010
A roundtable with Dr. Steven Schwartz

In the August issue of Financier Worldwide magazine, NERA Senior Vice President Dr. Steven Schwartz participates in a roundtable discussion on corporate disputes in the current financial climate. Such conflicts often result from a combination of factors, and developing a comprehensive dispute resolution strategy has never been more important. This roundtable focuses on how a company can manage risks and deal with conflicts as soon as they arise, and how a company can determine whether a conflict should be resolved in court, via arbitration, or through other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Dr. Schwartz is joined by a panel of experts including Tania Siciliano, Director, Bell Dewar; Christopher E. Thorsen, Partner, Bradley Arant Boult Cummings; Tim Portwood, Partner, Bredin Prat; Geoffrey B. Shaw, Partner, Cassels Brock & Blackwell; John S. Kiernan, Partner, Debevoise & Plimpton; Deborah E. Greenspan, Partner, Dickstein Shapiro; and Kamil Zawicki, Partner, Kubas Kos Gaertner-Adwokaci sp.p.
