Ludmila Herbst, Q.C. Presents at WCCAS’ Annual Members Meeting

Farris litigator Ludmila Herbst, Q.C. presented on November 19, 2016 at the annual members’ meeting of the Western Canada Commercial Arbitration Society (“WCCAS”).  Ludmila provided an overview of recent case law related to arbitration, including with respect to the scope of arbitration agreements, stays of proceedings and arbitral conflicts of interest and disclosure obligations.  Ludmila and Farris litigator David Gruber are both members of WCCAS, whose purposes are to encourage the use of commercial arbitration by Canadian businesses in appropriate circumstances, to promote Western Canada as a suitable “seat” of arbitration, and ensure that we continue to have a sufficient number of trained, experienced arbitrators capable of dealing with the many important and complex cases that arise in or are seated in the West.
