London as a dispute resolution hub for international parties

7 May 2019 | 09:00-10:30
London International Disputes Week


XXIV Old Buildings, LexisNexis, Norton Rose Fulbright, Osborne Clarke, Queen Mary University of London, White & Case

What this session will cover

The first event of LIDW is an illuminating panel on how international parties perceive London as a forum for international dispute resolution, with speakers answering questions and providing perspectives from jurisdictions and areas of the world including India, the Middle East, the CIS, Latin America and China.

It is expected that the session will range over a number of topical issues including:

  • London as a dispute resolution hub: why do foreign parties from the jurisdictions represented choose (1) London as an arbitral seat and (2) the courts of England & Wales in their jurisdiction clauses
  • The enforcement of international arbitral awards and judgments in the UK
  • The nuances of disputes concerning the jurisdictions represented that parties and their lawyers should be aware of
  • Does Brexit really affect London’s status as a dispute resolution forum?

Further information regarding the session, including the speakers, will be added to this page in due course.
