    Webinar: Rethinking Sovereignty: Can a closer aligned Europe actually empower the EU's Member States?

    Online: web based program, .

    Since the end of the cold war, Europeans have based their idea of a world they wanted to live in on three crucial pillars:
    • A multilateral, rules-based order that insulates economic relations and global problems from geopolitical competition.
    • A security alliance based on shared interests and values, with the US as the foundation of global order.
    • Free and fair global trade that benefits everybody and that allows state policy to focus on consumer protection rather than the interests of producers.

    Using Construction Contracts to Limit Time-Consuming Discovery in Arbitration

    European American Chamber of Commerce New York: The New York Times Building, 620 Eighth Avenue, 37th Fl., New York, NY 10018

    A hallmark of arbitration in the United States has been a limited discovery process. But, construction litigators know that a “limited discovery process” rarely means that there will be no discovery in the arbitration. In the current fast-paced, document-reliant construction environment, extensive e-discovery is often needed to fully understand the merits of a case, because many project teams rely heavily upon electronic project management systems and email communications to document and provide insight (and a time stamp) for a multitude of decisions made on a daily basis. Therefore, the potential for staggering costs and extensive delays that often accompany typical document discovery are present in all but the simplest of construction disputes.
