Mark Bravin Quoted in Law360
Mark Bravin was quoted in the article, "GE Case Asks High Court To Clarify Int'l Biz Uncertainty," published by Law360 on July 3, 2019.
The article discusses the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on whether a French unit of General Electric Co. can force arbitration of a dispute with an Alabama steel plant owner despite not signing an underlying arbitration agreement, an opportunity for the justices to provide clarity on an increasingly salient point of the U.S. law.
From the article...
"I think the principles that will come into play in the briefs and in the court's resolution of the question will be similar to ones in the domestic context, but with an important twist, and that is that the U.S. has long strived to be at the heart of promoting international commerce, especially for U.S. companies," said Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP partner Mark Bravin. "It would be a step backwards for the Supreme Court to say, 'Sorry, in the international context these principles don't apply.'"
