Other speakers included Meriam Al-Rashid of Dentons, Kabir Duggal of Baker McKenzie, and Camille Ng of the ICC International Court of Arbitration/SICANA. The discussion was moderated by Fordham University Law professor Josefa Sicard-Mirabel. The event was co-sponsored by the New York State Bar Association's Dispute Resolution Section.
