This event will focus on disputes in Lusophone jurisdictions in LatAm and Africa, notably Brazil, Angola and Mozambique. Over the past 15 years, Brazil has become one of the primary users of international arbitration, and the Brazilian arbitration bar has stepped up in Brazil and abroad. This is the case in London, where firms and chambers now have Brazilian partners and barristers; Brazilian solicitors have established new firms to focus on the Lusophone space.
In parallel, Portugal and African Lusophone jurisdictions, such as Angola and Mozambique, have seen remarkable development, having ratified key commercial and investment arbitration treaties, and noticed a rise in large scale commercial and investment disputes. The Portugal arbitration bar’s consistent growth, which now includes members of the ICSID Panel of arbitrators, is frequently seen in Brazilian cases. The various African arbitration initiatives will undoubtedly contribute further to the appearance of strong Lusophone international arbitration bars and institutions.
