Its nice to have friends, its even better to have podcast friends – which is why we were thrilled to be visited by Season 1 Guest, Saadia Bhatty, who has become one of the three hosts over at an awesome podcast called The Arbitration Station.  Her co-hosts, Joel Dahlquist and Brian Kotick started the show several years ago to simulate the witty and hearth filled conversations that occur at arbitration conferences.  They provide fun and inviting substantive conversations and contemporary insights on relevant issues in the field.  We had a lot of fun catching up and hope you will enjoy the episode as much as we did recording it.

The Rising Arbitrators Initiative

April 29, 2021

Whether you’re winning championships or building businesses, those who have been successful often say that the first one is the hardest one to get—that advice also applies in the world of international arbitration.  Getting that first appointment is crucial, and so is building on your profile to get subsequent appointments.  One organization, the Rising Arbitrator’s Initiative, wants to help the next generation or arbitrators get that foothold.  Although founded just last year, the group is already making waves which is why we sat down with the three members of their executive committee— ANA GERDAU DE BORJA MERCEREAU, ALEXANDER G. LEVENTHAL, and ROCÍO DIGÓN–to have a conversation.  Check it out:
