All change? How international financial dispute resolution is being restructured

The global financial crisis of 2007-2008 triggered a large number of disputes. Inadequacies in the machinery of international dispute resolution became apparent and a number of remedial steps have since been taken.

In England, we can be very proud of the continuing steps taken by the English judiciary (particularly by the Chairman of this seminar). These actions include the establishment of the Financial List at the Rolls Building and the founding of the Standing International Forum of Commercial Courts (SIFoCC) which has a strong international membership at senior judiciary level and works to achieve comity amongst commercial jurisdictions.

The international machinery for dispute resolution may be stress tested again soon. If the prediction in The Economist at the end of last year proves to be correct: “Economic trouble ahead …Red lights are flashing – not everywhere and not all at once, but enough to signal economic trouble in 2019.”
Amongst the issues to be discussed:

• Choice of law, jurisdiction and enforcement in the frontier markets
• Derivatives case law in 2018 and issues that might be litigated 2019
• Selecting the right expert. Become a recognized expert
