    What a difference SB 766 makes. Foreign and out of state lawyers can now handle international/cross border arbitrations in CA.

    CA’s doors are now wide open to international commercial arbitration.

    CA is no longer the inhospitable venue for international commercial arbitration that resulted from the CA Supreme Court decision in Birbrower, Montalbano, Condon & Frank vs. Superior Court (1998) 17 C 4th 119.

    The passage of SB 766 will have a valuable economic impact on CA and its lawyers.

    The 5 conditions which, if met, allow a foreign or out-of-state lawyer to participate in a CA seated arbitration.

    The CA International Arbitration and Conciliation Act CCP Sections 1297.11 et seq.
