We have previously reported on the ambitious Global Pound Conference (GPC) series of events being sponsored by Herbert Smith Freehills throughout 2016 and 2017.  Currently planned for at least 36 cities across 26 countries, the GPC series will gather actionable data on what users of dispute resolution mechanisms need in the 21st century and whether those needs are being met. 

Alexander Oddy, London partner and Head of ADR, explains how the GPC series will present corporations (and their in-house counsel) with a unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against peers in terms of how they manage and resolve conflict.
