Miami Partners Pedro J. Martinez-Fraga and C. Ryan Reetz will speak at the International Arbitration Seminar on Convergence and Divergence of Investment and International Commercial Arbitration, the largest regional event in this field. Bryan Cave joins FINJUS and the NYU School of Law as a sponsor and organizer of the event, which will be held in the Dominican Republic in November.
Martinez-Fraga and Reetz will discuss the evolving relationships between international commercial arbitration and the increasingly significant field of investor-state arbitration, including the use of the U.S. courts to obtain discovery of evidence for use in those proceedings and the differing standards used for enforcement of international commercial and investor-state arbitral awards.
Martinez-Fraga is co-leader of the firm’s International Arbitration Practice. He has represented eight countries as lead counsel and served as an arbitrator in major ICC and ICSID (World Bank) proceedings. Martinez-Fraga is an adjunct professor at the NYU School of Law. He has written more than 50 articles published in 15 countries and translated into five languages, and six books on public and private international law. Most recently, he and Reetz co-authored the book Public Purpose in International Law: Rethinking Regulatory Sovereignty in the Global Era, which will be published by the Cambridge University Press this fall.
