FIRE & ICE Circle Europe

12 March 2024 to 13 March 2024
Le Mirador Resort & Spa, Vevey, Switzerland

FIRE & ICE Circle Europe is an exclusive TL4Circle event and is by invitation only. This event will bring together 40 top Asset Recovery Practitioners in the beautiful setting of Vevey, Switzerland, curated by our Advisory Board Yves Klein of Monfrini Bitton Klein, Jennifer Fox of Ogier, Adam El-Hakim of LALIVE, Stewart Hey of Charles Russell Speechlys, Valerie Hohenberg of Wolf Theiss, and Yam Wern-Jhien of Setia Law.

This exclusive invitation only event, involves facilitated discussions across one and a half days of content, led by our esteemed Advisory Board consisting of Yves Klein of Monfrini Bitton Klein, Jennifer Fox of Ogier, Adam El-Hakim of LALIVE, Stewart Hey of Charles Russell Speechlys, Valerie Hohenberg of Wolf Theiss, and Yam Wern-Jhien of Setia Law.

We have been working with the advisory board to devise and curate the invite list and areas of discussion. Designed to be interactive and as inclusive as possible, there are no set-piece presentations or panel sessions with the focus being on open discussion.

The event will run in two broad formats: horseshoe & interactive roundtables, whereby we are expecting all attendees to be involved throughout. Our Advisory Board will each lead on the sessions to get the conversation amongst all attendees started.

Given the format this is very much fluid, and we are keen to take suggestions from attendees up until the event itself as to what you would like to have covered.

David vs. Goliath — Thinking Outside the Box to Win Disputes

When fighting against opponents whose assets are hidden in jurisdictions lacking rule of law, claimants risk being worn down by long, costly and uncertain legal process. Deploying non-linear solutions outside the courtroom in parallel to the legal proceedings can help turn the tide to win disputes.
