Stephen McKinney, Miles neutral and Chair of the Georgia Bar’s Dispute Resolution Section,serves as the host of this episode. McKinney shared: "In conjunction with other positive developments in international dispute resolution, like the U.S. becoming a signatory to the Singapore Convention on the enforcement of mediated settlements, passage of the Georgia Mediation Act will provide foreign parties with the level of confidence they need to increasingly look at Atlanta as a premier venue for the mediated and arbitrated resolution of international disputes. Shelby’s wide-ranging experience representing foreign and domestic parties in commercial arbitrations and mediations makes him the ideal promoter of the Georgia Mediation Act and Atlanta’s larger dispute resolution ambitions.
