In association with Lexology and GAR, Herbert Smith Freehills will be hosting a webinar on "Digital disputes and decentralised justice: the possible vs the practical in arbitration".

Tuesday 8 February 2022, 1.00 - 2.00pm GMT

In this short webinar, the panellists will discuss and debate how new digital technologies impact upon the dispute resolution landscape for B2B relations and whether arbitration is fit for purpose in resolving digital disputes.

We will hear about the key question of speed vs enforceability, the impact of governments' regulatory responses, particular novelties in disputes arising in a decentralised context (including around evidence gathering) as well as extra-contractual disputes (e.g. cyber and ransomware attacks).
Panellists include:
  • Charlie Morgan, senior arbitration lawyer at Herbert Smith Freehills and co-founder of the firm's Digital Law Group.
  • Sapfo Constantatos, Senior Legal Counsel in Standard Chartered Bank's Disputes and Government Investigations Legal team.
  • Professor Sarah Green, Commissioner for Commercial and Common Law at the Law Commission.
  • Sam Goodman, Barrister at Twenty Essex
The webinar will be taking place on Tuesday 8 February 2022 at 13:00 – 14:00. To register and find out more information, follow the link below for what promises to be a thought provoking but practical session!
