Hosting more than 5,000 corporate and disputes professionals in a series spanning 40 cities across 31 countries, the Global Pound Conference aims to improve the resolution of commercial disputes in the 21st century.

Using a unique interactive format, which has been dubbed the blueprint for future conferences, delegates from key stakeholder groups vote anonymously on standardised questions via a voting App, debated in real time by world class moderators and panellists. The data will be distilled into a global report and white paper, heralding a new era of dispute resolution.

With court and arbitral claims in Hong Kong reaching record highs and disputes becoming increasingly complex, costly and time consuming, we invite you to have your say at the Hong Kong event on 23 February 2017.

With the backing of leading corporates, institutions and the Department of Justice, the Hong Kong event is set to be a major dispute resolution conference of 2017. General counsel, regional heads and senior executives from leading corporates will share their views, alongside leading international judges, arbitrators and mediators. The Hong Kong event will also include a keynote address from Secretary for Justice, Rimsky Yuen, as well as a closing address from Chief Justice Geoffrey Ma. Click here to access the full programme.

If you are involved in contentious work (whether litigation, arbitration, alternative dispute resolution or investigations) this is an event you should not miss.  Click here to see the invitation.
