On Friday 30 September, Can Yeginsu will be speaking at Global Arbitration Review’s Live New York 2022 conference at WilmerHale’s offices.
The conference will bring together practitioners from across North America, including arbitrators, private practice lawyers, funders, expert witnesses, senior general counsel to debate and analyse the latest major developments in international arbitration.

The panelists will also look at:

- The emergence of human rights claims extending to claims regarding environmental impacts
- The impacts of economic sanctions on dispute resolution and access to justice
