New York, May 28, 2014 — Kate Brown de Vejar, International Arbitration counsel at Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, was elected as co-chair of the under-40 group of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA). The new role follows Ms. Brown de Vejar's tenure as co-coordinator of the Young ICCA mentoring program for 2013 to 2014.
“I believe firmly that one can seldom pay back in a meaningful manner, but one can always pay forward,” said Ms. Brown de Vejar. “I have been the beneficiary of advice and guidance from lawyers far more experienced and knowledgeable than I, over many years. I welcome the opportunity to work with my fellow co-chairs to further Young ICCA's objectives of opening doors for young arbitration practitioners and promoting diversity in this field.”
Ms. Brown de Vejar, based in Mexico City, joined Curtis in 2010 and was promoted to counsel in 2011. She has represented sovereign states, state-owned entities and private corporations in connection with international arbitrations under the leading institutional and ad hoc arbitration rules, including ICSID, UNCITRAL, the ICC, LCIA and the Mexican Chamber of Commerce.
The Australian-native Ms. Brown de Vejar, in addition to her ICCA roles, is a member of the Australian Delegation to UNCITRAL Working Group II, recently charged with revising the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules and developing the UNCITRAL Rules on Transparency in treaty-based investor-State arbitration. She was also a member of the ICC Commission on Arbitration's Task Force on the Revision of the ICC ADR Rules and is currently a member of the Advisory Body to Mexico's Construction Industry Arbitration Center (CAIC).
Young ICCA, established in 2010, is a world-wide arbitration knowledge network for young practitioners and students. Through its core activities of regular skills workshops, held around the world, and the mentoring program, Young ICCA aims to expose young practitioners from all corners of the globe to the international practice of arbitration and promote the development and use of best practices in the field.
