We are pleased to invite you to attend “Digital Disputes and decentralised justice: the possible vs the practical in arbitration”, which Herbert Smith Freehills will be hosting in association with Lexology and GAR.

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).


  • 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 this link for what promises to be a thought provoking but practical session!
