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. LIDW will see London play host to a number of seminars and conferences which will explore the future of dispute resolution, and celebrate London’s heritage as a centre for handling disputes.

As part of LIDW, Linklaters is excited to be hosting the LIDW seminar devoted to financial services disputes – which will take place on 7 May 2019 (14.00-17.00) at One Silk Street, London, EC2Y 8HQ. This unique gathering of representatives from industry, the senior judiciary, the legal profession and legal services specialists will examine why London is, and should remain, a pre-eminent forum to meet the industry’s commercial, business and legal needs in the resolution of complex cross-border financial services disputes. Our programme will include an appearance by Jackie van Haersolte-van Hof (DG, LCIA) who will look at arbitration in the context of upcoming trends in financial services disputes.
