New York, February 8, 2016 – Curtis International Arbitration partner Kate Brown de Vejar has been selected to become an original member of the Young ArbitralWomen Practitioners Executive Committee (YAWP). She is one of seven lawyers named to this committee.
YAWP is a new initiative of ArbitralWomen, the international network of women in dispute resolution. YAWP, for members aged 40 and under, will pursue the same goals as ArbitralWomen – to advance the interests of women and promote female practitioners – as well as provide a networking platform and a forum to address issues that are of particular interest to young women practicing arbitration. YAWP will launch with a day-long conference for young practitioners to celebrate and promote young female arbitration practitioners on April 8 in Zurich.
Ms. Brown de Vejar, who is based in Curtis Mexico, was recently promoted to partner. She focuses her practice on investor-State and international commercial arbitration, and has represented states, state-owned entities and private corporations in connection with international arbitrations under the leading institutional and ad hoc arbitration rules, including ICSID, UNCITRAL, ICC, LCIA and the Mexican Chamber of Commerce.
For the past two years, Ms. Brown de Vejar has co-chaired the Young ICCA, the under-40 branch of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration. She has been a member since 2008 of the Australian Delegation to UNCITRAL Working Group II, charged with revising the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules and developing the UNCITRAL Rules on Transparency in treaty-based investor-State arbitration, as well as the corresponding Convention on Transparency.
Last spring, Ms. Brown de Vejar addressed the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization’s conference, “Global Harmonized Carbon Pricing: Looking Beyond Paris,” in advance of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which was held later in the year in Paris. She has also guest lectured on international dispute resolution at the Center for Research and Teaching in Economics (CIDE), Mexico City, and the Tecnológico de Monterrey, in the State of Mexico, and has been a speaker at the International Bar Association’s annual conference.
ArbitralWomen brings together female practitioners active in international dispute resolution, such as international arbitration. ArbitralWomen has grown to more than 1000 members from over 40 countries on all continents since it was founded in 1993.
