2011 ICAL alumnae Gretta Walters, associate at Chaffetz Lindsey LLP in New York, Global Advisory Board member of ICDR Young & International and Secretary of the International Commercial Disputes Committee of the New York City Bar, is interviewed by Young ICCA on her background, career and approach to the practice of international arbitration.

After concluding her LL.M in Stockholm, Gretta also worked as Legal Counsel at the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and coached the Stockholm team at the Vis International Commercial Arbitration moot court. 

In the interview, Gretta reflects on her time at Stockholm University: "The pivotal moment in my career was when I made the decision to move to Sweden to pursue an LL.M. in International Commercial Arbitration Law at Stockholm University. I anticipated that the experience would teach me a great deal more about International Arbitration, but I had planned to return to New York immediately after the program ended, where I primarily would be working in US litigation. My decision to move to Stockholm ultimately changed my plans and kicked off a chain of unexpected experiences and opportunities that shaped my career".  

Gretta goes on to describe her involvement in the international arbitration community and provides candid advice and insight to those entering the field. 

The interview is a delight.  It can be found on the Kluwer Arbitration Blog
