The Scottish Arbitration Centre’s Chairman, Brandon Malone, has been invited to speak at the 27th European Energy Law Seminar which will take place on 25-26 January in The Hague, the Netherlands.
The Seminar was organised by NeVER in conjunction with the University of Groningen, Centre of Energy Law; the University of Oslo, and the Petroleum and Energy Law Department of the Scandinavian Institute of Maritime Law.
Brandon Malone will speak on the subject of dispute resolution in the energy sector and in his capacity as co-director of the International Centre for Energy Arbitration (ICEA).
The International Centre for Energy Arbitration (ICEA) is a joint initiative of the Scottish Arbitration Centre and the University of Dundee’s Centre for Energy, Petroleum, Mineral Law and Policy. The ICEA was established in 2014 and launched by the then First Minister, Alex Salmond, with the aim of investigating current trends and desired requirements in respect of dispute resolution in the energy sector, and with a longer term view of establishing bespoke energy arbitration rules and Scotland as a leading jurisdiction on energy dispute resolution. In May of 2015 the ICEA published its Initial Report on Dispute Resolution in the Energy Sector to much international interest and legal press coverage. A copy of the Report can be accessed here.
Andrew Mackenzie, Chief Executive of the Scottish Arbitration Centre, and Secretary General of the ICEA said:
“We are delighted that a representative of the ICEA has been selected to present at such a high profile energy conference. This opportunity speaks to the growing profile of the ICEA as an authority on energy dispute resolution, and of Scotland as the place to resolve energy disputes.”
Registration to the 27th European Energy Law Seminar closed on 10 January.
