Our podcast series covers the key themes and trends in Japanese dispute resolution


Japan Dispute Resolution Podcast – Episode One : The Japan International Dispute Resolution Centre 

David Gilmore, Craig Shepherd and James Allsop from our international arbitration practice in Japan discuss the key features of the new JIDRC Tokyo facility , the Japanese government's ongoing endeavours to promote Japan's popularity as a seat for international arbitration and some potential challenges it may face as it seeks to 'unseat' some of its other, perhaps more popular, international competitors.


Japan Dispute Resolution Podcast – Episode Two : International Arbitration Updates from 2020

David Gilmore, Craig Shepherd and Yosuke Homma reflect on key international arbitration updates from 2020 including new signatories to the New York Convention, changes to the LCIA and ICC Rules, and some insights on the non-interventionist approach taken by the English Courts, which is particularly relevant for London seated arbitrations – and how this impacts businesses in Japan and beyond.


Japan Dispute Resolution Podcast – Episode Three : International Arbitration Outlook for 2021

David Gilmore, James Allsop and Joel Halliday reflect on the impact that Covid-19 has had on arbitration over the last year, and what we expect to change or stay the same in 2021, such as the use of new technologies, virtual hearings. The podcast also considers various challenges posed by the pandemic, such as logistical challenges and the impact on the effectiveness of virtual hearings.
