London International Disputes Week Is Coming…

A collaboration of over 50 leading law firms, barristers’ chambers, experts, academics, legal commentators and dispute resolution organisations have joined forces to launch London International Disputes Week (LIDW), with the inaugural event set to take place between 7-10 May 2019.

The event will explore the future of dispute resolution and celebrate the heritage of London as a centre for handling disputes through a programme of interactive sessions. Spanning four days, LIDW comprises a 1-day conference at the National Gallery, London and 18 sessions on different types of disputes and forms of dispute resolution.

LIDW will bring together lawyers, judges, arbitrators, academics and others involved in using, or administrating, dispute resolution from around the world and hailing from numerous sectors.

The event will draw on the international experience of clients and colleagues and facilitate discussions on the future of dispute resolution in London, where and how disputes will arise, how London should adapt to the changing landscape, and the future of dispute resolution globally.

Linklaters is excited to be a part of LIDW and will be hosting the LIDW seminar on financial services disputes, as well as being represented on panel discussions concerning commercial arbitration, and investment treaty disputes.
