Kyongwha Chung, Una Cho, Yeji Kim, Young Suk Park, and Bart Wasiak

Development in technology has not only changed our daily lives but also the landscape of disputes resolution in various aspects.  High-tech sector has its own unique characteristics:  it is highly technical, complicated and dynamic.  Although there are many tech companies facing disputes, they have underutilized dispute resolution mechanisms, such as arbitration.  Is this because arbitration is not suitable for technology disputes?  This panel will explore the nature of technology disputes and discuss the suitability of arbitration (both commercial and investor-state arbitrations) to resolve disputes arising from the technology industry.  Also, this panel will explore the changing landscape and identify emerging trends in the use of international arbitration for technology disputes.

This panel was presented at the Fall 2023 Asia/Pacific Conference on “Law and Technology in a Changing World” in Seoul, South Korea.
