Dual Role Concerns in Arbitration (Jim Carter, Dennis H. Hranitzky, Eduardo Silva Romero).

James Carter (Partner at Sullivan & Cromwell) spoke on the issues arising out of what has been observed to be perhaps a growing phenomenon of arbitrators who are also counsel in other arbitration cases being suspected of being influenced by their dual roles when they write awards that deal with issues that are similar to, or the same as, the issues about which they have ruled as arbitrators. Two guests joined this discussion: Dennis H. Hranitzky and Eduardo Silva Romero of Dechert LLP.
