London International Disputes Week 2022

Members of 3VB are delighted to be taking part in London International Disputes Week 2022, which will be taking place in a hybrid format from 9 – 13 May.

The programme for LIDW22 draws on current global issues facing the sector, including sustainability in dispute resolution, corporate social, ethical and environmental responsibility and related issues, the wellbeing challenges of ‘winning at all costs’, climate change disputes, witness recollection, trade challenges in a digital world, and London’s role in a decentralised world. This year’s conference will also include, for the first time, an ‘International Day’ on Monday 9 May 2022.

The conference programme is supported by collaborative events.

London – global centre for art and cultural property dispute resolution

A panel of expert art lawyers will discuss their experiences of a wide range of disputes (including provenance, authenticity, restitution), current legacy and repatriation issues, and London’s offering in resolving art and cultural property disputes. 3VB’s Andrew Onslow QC will be speaking at this session.

Thursday 12 May, 08:30 – 10:30 (BST)

States as first class citizens? Special treatment for states in international disputes

In this session, you will hear from legal practitioners, in-house counsel and government lawyers about the legal and procedural peculiarities to which state involvement in arbitrations and litigations can give rise. The session will be structured as two panels: the first panel will consider state involvement in arbitrations (both investment treaty and commercial); the second will be structured as a question and answer session and will focus on arbitration-related litigation involving states before the English courts. 3VB’s Mark Wassouf and Cameron Miles will be speaking at this session.

Friday 13 May, 11:00 – 13:00 (BST)
