UK Supreme Court interventions—when public and private interests collide

10 May 2021 | 18:00-19:00
London International Disputes Week


Brick Court, Hausfeld and XXIV Old Buildings

What this session will cover

A stellar panel featuring Lord Hoffmann (Brick Court), Lisa Webb (Which?), Philip Shepherd QC (XXIV Old Buildings) and chaired by Ned Beale (Hausfeld) will explore the dynamics of public interest interventions in commercial cases, from the perspective of judges, intervenors and practitioners representing commercial parties. In light of 2020’s Supreme Court interventions, including Which? in Merricks v Mastercard, the All Party Parliamentary Group on Fair Business Banking in Marex v Sevilleja and arbitral institutions in Halliburton v Chubb, the panel will discuss:

  • How interventions influence judicial decision making – and do they make better law?
  • How intervenors can maximise their input and impact
  • Practical tips for counsel and solicitors dealing with intervenors
