What this session will cover

A well-functioning legal system aims to deal with claims effectively (i.e. an appropriate amount of compensation awarded to injured parties) and efficiently (in terms of cost and time). Recent legal developments and judgments are likely to give rise to an increase in claims from both commercial entities and consumers, in areas including competition litigation, securities litigation, ESG-related claims and data breach/privacy claims. These types of claims are often complex and present opportunities and threats to the effectiveness and efficiency of the UK legal system. This session discusses expected trends arising from these types of claims, and discusses ways in which lawyers, organisations and experts can address these challenges.

Speaker Panel: Neil Blake – Partner, Herbert Smith Freehills; Kenny Henderson – Partner, CMS; Meloria Meschi (Moderator/Panellist) – Senior Managing Director, FTI Consulting; Richard Palmer – Senior Managing Director, FTI Consulting.
