13 May 2021: Navigating the Quagmire: Conflicts in Construction International Arbitration

1st Apr 2021


9:00 am BST

Virtual Panel Discussion

In a member-hosted event for London International Disputes Week (LIDW21), hosted by the King’s Centre of Construction Law & Dispute Resolution and Jones Day, Chantal-Aimée Doerries QC will chair a panel discussion on the subject of arbitrator conflicts, expert conflicts and conflict of laws. In this discussion Julian Bailey, Partner, White & Case, Professor Renato Nazzini, Director of the Centre for Construction Law and Dispute Resolution at King’s College London and James Pickavance, Partner at Jones Day, will analyse the interplay between institutional rules, guidelines and recent case law in civil and common law jurisdictions.

The panel will consider conflict of laws in the context of the choice of the seat, the applicable law of the arbitration agreement and conflicts between courts in areas such as anti-arbitration and anti-suit injunctions. Across all three areas, it will offer some thoughts as to how conflicts are used as a way to delay or frustrate the arbitration process and offer some practical guidance as to how these tactics might be overcome.

The event will be held virtually on Thursday 13 May from 09:00 – 10:00 BST.

About London International Disputes Week 2021

Running from 10-14 May 2021, London International Disputes Week 2021 (LIDW21) will, through a programme of virtual sessions, provide attendees with the opportunity to hear leading experts discuss and debate the ever-changing landscape of international dispute resolution.

For more information on the main programme for London International Disputes Week 2021 and to register please click here.

The programme for 2021 will draw on current global issues facing the sector. Themes include: the role of London in a decentralised world, digital advocacy, social and environmental responsibility and issues, the mental health challenges faced in the legal profession and the role of technology. Using London’s position as a major international seat for the dispute resolution business, LIDW21 will engage with international perspectives across all sectors and explore how the industry can adapt, evolve and progress. LIDW21 builds on the success of its inaugural year in 2019. LIDW strives to be forward-thinking and inclusive, demonstrating legal London’s commitment to diversity. London holds international appeal as a global centre for dispute resolution – whether through its courts or by arbitration, mediation, expert determination or negotiation – built upon a rich tradition of English law dating back to the Magna Carta.

Atkin Chambers is delighted to be a member of London International Disputes Week (LIDW).
