COVID-19 has not only affected in-person court hearings, but has similarly affected the arbitration world as well.  In-person arbitration hearings are now difficult—if not impossible—to hold owing to travel restrictions and the difficulty in safely conducting face-to-face hearings.

The arbitration world is rapidly adapting to remote arbitration hearings.  The Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, one of the important institutions for international arbitration, is leading the charge to adapt arbitration processes and technologies.

Lise Alm, Head of Business Development for the Institute, discusses how her organisation is helping to transform arbitration hearings—not only for the current situation but to prepare for the future as well.  Sebastiaan Bos, Director of Solutions for Europe, the Middle East and Asia, at Thomson Reuters, joins the discussion to talk about how advanced workflow technologies such as HighQ are helping to enable this transformation.
