In April more than 40 teams from Austria, Germany, Great Britain, Brazil, Argentina, and Turkey took part in pre-moots within the frame of the XXVI international commercial arbitration competition in the name of Willem C. Vis in Paris.
International Law Firm “White & Case“(Paris) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) took on the role of events` organizers.
A lawyer of our firm Leyla Kanametova was one of the arbitrators selected for participation in the preliminary rounds.
Leyla notes: “The teams demonstrated a high level of preparation, excellent knowledge of the actual circumstances of the case, as well as in-depth study of the submitted written memorandums. Pre-moots are extremely important for teams to prepare for the final rounds in Vienna, as they allow to build up and upgrade the skills of not only public speaking, but also improve their arguments on the case, be able to defend their point of view, continue research on the issue, and be ready for criticism. This is a unique experience needed for the next stages of the competition, as well as an excellent school and an opportunity to meet the leading international experts in the field of arbitration. I am sure that this experience will have a value-added for successful performance of teams in the final rounds in Vienna.”
