We are pleased to share with you this podcast which looks at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on ongoing and future arbitral proceedings. We explore what arbitral institutions and other organisations have been doing to assist parties and arbitral tribunals through this difficult period. The team also shares some practical tips from our recent experience on how to manage virtual hearings given the current restrictions on travel and social distancing.

This podcast is chaired by Vanessa Naish, Arbitration Practice Manager and Professional Support Consultant, who is joined by Craig Tevendale, Head of our International Arbitration group in London, Patricia Nacimiento, co-Head of the German dispute resolution team and Kathryn Sanger, Partner in our Hong Kong office.  Along with their roles at Herbert Smith Freehills, Craig, Patricia and Kathryn each have roles at arbitral institutions and also sit as arbitrators, and can therefore share multiple perspectives on the current situation.
