On behalf of Legal Week, and principal sponsor EY, I would like to thank those who attended the Commercial Litigation & Arbitration Forum 2014, which took place on the 6th of November at the Waldorf Hilton, Aldwych, London.

Chaired by Guy Pendell, CMS, and Tim Parkes, Herbert Smith Freehills, the 2014 programme looked at a broad range of key topics including:

  • The regionalisation of dispute resolution
  • International jurisdictions focus:
    • Russia and the CIS
    • Middle East and Africa
    • Asia
  • Antitrust damages action
  • White collar crime
  • The dispute resolution toolkit:
    • The availability of interim injunctions and remedies
    • Freezing injunctions
    • Appointing an emergency arbitrator
    • ADR options
  • Regulatory investigations

We welcomed The Rt Hon the Lady Justice Gloster, DBE, as our opening keynote speaker, on the topic of "Litigators and arbitrators - do they remain useful business tools in 21st century global dispute resolution?".  We were also delighted to have with us Stephen Jagusch, global chair of the international arbitration practice at Quinn Emanuel, as our afternoon keynote speaker.  Stephen discussed 'judges as arbitrators - the cursed and the cure?'.

I would like to extend my personal thanks to our sponsors, speakers and the event Advisory Board, as well as the event's chairmen Guy Pendell and Tim Parkes, for their support of this event. 

I look forward to welcoming you to the 2015 event, taking place in November in London.  If you would like to discuss this event please do not hesitate to get in touch.
