International Arbitration Day

3 Jun
08:30 - 18:30

LIDW’s International Arbitration Day will ‘follow the arbitration disputes sun’ across key regions and jurisdictions. The event will be hosted across three firms within a very short walk of one another, so that delegates can choose the sessions covering the jurisdictions and regions most relevant to their work. The International Arbitration Day will explore recent developments, the connections of those regions to English law and London seat arbitrations as well as the role of lawyers in enforcement procedures and asset recovery. 
Each session will consist of a panel discussion with a moderator with time allowed for Q&A.
A summary of the agenda for the day with the regions to be covered can be found below. Delegates should register for each session they plan to attend, including the networking breakfast and lunch. The detailed event description for each session will include a brief synopsis of the theme to be covered and information on the panellists.
