Atlanta’s International Arbitration Initiative
April 26, 2011
Glenn Hendrix, a managing partner at Arnall Golden and Gregory LLP, is leading an initiative to develop an international arbitration center based in Atlanta, Georgia since “Arbitration has become the leading method for resolving cross-border business disputes.”
Hendrix suggests attracting cases from Africa since that would set Atlanta apart from centers elsewhere in the world. For example, Miami has recently utilized its advantageous geographic location to become a booming regional center for disputes in Latin America—becoming second only to New York in terms of number of arbitrations.
