Jenner & Block Partner Lawrence S. Schaner is the subject of a Q&A with Law360.  In the article, Mr. Schaner answers five questions: 1. what attracted him to international arbitration work (the opportunity to do interesting work; the cross-cultural and comparative law aspects of the practice; and the chance to build something new at the firm); 2. two trends that affect the practice of international arbitration (the flood of new players entering the arbitration field and the fact that international arbitration is becoming more of a business); 3. the most challenging case he has worked on (a six-year running battle in an ICC case that ended relatively recently); 4. advice he would give to a lawyer considering a career in international arbitration (be realistic); and 5. a lawyer, outside the firm, who has impressed him.
