Research and Education
As part of our continuous effort to help further develop the discussion on international trade, arbitration and other emerging fields of law, our team regularly publishes scholarly articles and essays in various outlets.
Additionally, we have increasingly focused our efforts on multiplying knowledge through open courses and educational activities developed with our partner network.
Em épocas difíceis, os ânimos se acirram e conflitos se multiplicam. Nos negócios, não é diferente. Pensando nisso, o Atelier Jurídico oferece o webinar Pré-arbitragem e negociação: resolução de conflitos em tempos de crise.
Vamos falar sobre mitigação e preparação para potenciais situações de estresse e conflitos criados pelos efeitos da pandemia do coronavírus, e ensinar como estruturar um plano de contingência para a execução de contratos, negociações, e preparação de pleitos judiciais e arbitrais a partir de plataformas eletrônicas.
Dia 13 de abril de 2020, às 10h. Online, via Zoom.

What compensates tears?
What solutions can law bring to the issue of major disasters? Could collective arbitration combine efficiency and justice in repairing damage to victims? In the wake of the recent catastrophes in Mariana and Brumadinho, Atelier Jurídico founder and Nakagawa Baptista & Baptista partner Luiz Olavo Baptista recalls the experience of the United Nations Compensation Committee, created after the Gulf War to indemnify those affected by the conflict, and reflects on the solutions contemporary legal practice can offer to cases of this kind:
“Given the large number of victims and the extensive material and environmental damage, I dare not say there is a method that both satisfies and reduces the impact of this incident with the various possibilities to be explored along the third-party funding companies in the market. For this reason, the legal model and mentality used in the Panels of the UNCC could be transported and adapted to the reality of Brumadinho – perhaps with the new perspective of a class arbitration.”

Brazil and France: Arbitration Compared
The book Brasil e França: a Arbitragem na Visão Comparada (“Brazil and France: Arbitration in comparative vision”) is now available for free download – it is available in Portuguese and French here.
Luiz Olavo Baptista contributed with a chapter on the Brazilian and French conceptions of public order in international arbitration.
The book is a result of the seminar “Superior Tribunal de Justiça e Corte de Cassação Francesa: a Arbitragem na Visão Comparada” (“Superior Court of Justice and the French Cour de Cassation: Arbitration in comparative vision”,) promoted by the Brazilian Superiour Court of Justice, the French Cour de Cassation, and FGV Projetos, which took place in Brasília in September 2017.
It compiles discussions held during the seminar, which brought together Brazilian Superiour Court and French Cour de Cassation Justices together to exchange experiences on the use of arbitration in dispute resolution in Brazil and France.
