Özge Yazar Interviews Marek Krasula of the ICC about International Arbitration
Litigation lawyer Özge Yazar interviewed Marek Krasula, Director of Arbitration and ADR in North America at the ICC International Court of Arbitration, for the Canadian Journal of Commercial Arbitration (CJCA). The interview, conducted with James Plotkin of Gowling WLG, covered Marek's career, the qualities needed to work in arbitration, access to justice issues, diversity and inclusion, as well as other interesting topics.
"In arbitration you see cross-border disputes where you need to be attuned to the reality of there being different parties from different nationalities, from different legal cultures, clients speaking different languages, and arbitrators and opposing counsel who may not be from your jurisdiction. I think that's something to keep in mind," Marek said.
