Herbert Smith Freehills’ Tokyo office recently welcomed some 70 clients and industry professionals to its 8th Annual Construction Conference. The theme of this year's conference was the growing global focus on high speed rail projects.
The event was chaired by Emma Kratochvilova, head of construction and infrastructure disputes in Herbert Smith Freehills' Tokyo office. Emma was joined by three of her colleagues from London: Patrick Mitchell, global head of infrastructure, Nicholas Downing, co-lead of non-contentious construction and engineering, and Mark Veitch, a senior associate who specialises in international construction and infrastructure projects.
This article summarises many of the highlights of the topics introduced by the presenters and the subsequent lively discussion prompted by them.
