LIDW21 Member-Hosted Event: How to Find the Right Partner in a Foreign Jurisdiction

Highlights

ThoughtLeaders4 Disputes Community is pleased to co-host this event with RPC and HFW *

Cross-border litigation often requires cooperation from firms in multiple jurisdictions. How can you ensure that you choose a firm with the right expertise that can deliver a seamless service to your client? Similarly, with so many disputes finding their way to London, how can you ensure that you are selected to be the boots on the ground in London by firms outside the UK?

Join us for a practical and interactive session where leading practitioners representing large and boutique firms from key onshore and offshore jurisdictions share best practice and insight on how to manage these relationships effectively.

In addition to signing up for this event, please register for LIDW21: https://2021.lidw.co.uk/register/ which includes 16 virtual sessions delivered by leading experts in their fields, 4 unmissable keynote addresses by high-profile dispute resolution figures, and many vital opportunities to network with colleagues from around the world.

LIDW

ThoughtLeaders4 Disputes Community is delighted to be part of LIDW21 by partnering with RPC and HFW to deliver a LIDW21 Member-hosted event. Member-hosted events are running alongside the LIDW21 core conference programme. 

London International Disputes Week 2021 comes at a significant period for the UK legal sector, in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, post-Brexit and amid an uncertain global political environment. Through a programme of virtual sessions, you will have the opportunity to hear leading experts discuss and debate the ever-changing landscape of international dispute resolution. You will also be taking part in the biggest celebration there is of the heritage of London as a leading centre for handling international disputes.

The programme for 2021 will draw on current global issues facing the sector. Themes include: the role of London in a decentralised world, digital advocacy, social and environmental responsibility and issues, the mental health challenges faced in the legal profession and the role of technology. Using London’s position as a major international seat for the dispute resolution business, LIDW21 will engage with international perspectives across all sectors and explore how the industry can adapt, evolve and progress.

LIDW21 builds on the success of its inaugural year in 2019. LIDW21 strives to be forward-thinking and inclusive, demonstrating legal London’s commitment to diversity. London holds international appeal as a global centre for dispute resolution – whether through its courts or by arbitration, mediation, expert determination or negotiation – built upon a rich tradition of English law dating back to the Magna Carta.

We look forward to welcoming you, virtually, to LIDW21 in May 2021.
