Partner Patrick Pearsall Shares Insights on Trends in Arbitration

Jenner & Block Partner Patrick W. Pearsall was interviewed at a Global Arbitration Review Live event in London.  Asked about the key trends to watch in 2019, Mr. Pearsall pointed to the various reform efforts for investment arbitration.  “I think we as practitioners have a unique role to play in aiding policy makers in that discussion,” he observed, “and also as officers of international law who are committed to the peaceful and thoughtful resolution of investment disputes consistent with the rule of law.”  Mr. Pearsall also offered advice to someone just starting out in the field:  “I think you need to be creative; you need to be patient; you need to be helpful.”
