Welcome to the Commercial Litigation Forum 2013: The Global Face of Commercial Litigation
Thursday 24 October 2013
The Waldorf Hilton, London, UK
The Global Face of Commercial Litigation
London is fast becoming one of the dispute resolution hubs of the world - but what is it that draws people to our system? Is it trust or is it technique? This year we look to global trends to see where the flow of work is coming from and why foreign parties are choosing to litigate on our home turf. This year we will also look at the key changes within our domestic system and look at what our clients can expect over the next 3-5 years.
Key topics will include:
- Damage based agreements - will we be billing our clients in the same way in 3 years' time?
- Middle East and Asian trends - are these fast becoming strong competitors for work or can we both co-exist?
- Russia and the CIS - understanding the mind-set within the Russian Legal system and the appeal for Russian based work.
- Understanding the global client - what are the changing needs of the global client undergoing litigation? The appeal for cross-border work and why our client is becoming more complex.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Legal Week Commercial Litigation Forum and trust you will enjoy the conference. We hope you will not only find the conference stimulating and informative but also come away with fresh ideas and practical solutions for managing litigation.
