Finance parties are often inclined to revert to favoured dispute resolution choices in their transactions. This default position is largely based on their perception of what offers the greatest flexibility or the lowest risk or both. However, the legal landscape moves fast and there have been a number of recent developments that have challenged the assumptions supporting these default choices. Indeed, with careful drafting, finance parties are in a better position than ever with regard to their choice of forum for resolving disputes.
In this highly practical webinar our panel will explore a number of recent developments which have a significant impact on dispute resolution choices in finance transactions and affect how those clauses can be structured. The topics our speakers will explore include:
- the end of the threat of an "Italian torpedo" within the EU?
- the implications of Brexit for dispute resolution and governing law clauses
- the potential for a summary judgment style process in arbitration
- recent changes to the position on unilateral option clauses in transactions related to France
- alternatives to arbitration in Asia Pacific: the Singapore International Commercial Court
Our speakers will also discuss the issue of "Brexit-proofing" contracts in the context of dispute resolution.
