With its theme “Dispute Resolution – Global, Sustainable, Ethical?” LIDW22 will take a critical look at the future of dispute resolution and its place in the post-pandemic world, through a series of events held both physically and virtually between 9 and 13 May. The programme for LIDW22 draws on current global issues driving the practice of dispute resolution. Drawing on London’s position as a major international disputes hub, LIDW22 will engage with international perspectives across all sectors and explore how the industry can adapt, evolve and progress in the light of current global challenges.

Daniela Paez from our New York Office is speaking on the panel: Latin America: delivering sustainable and ethical infrastructure across key sectors – a disputes perspective (9 May, 15:00 – 16:30). The Latin America region has embraced ethical and sustainable investments across multiple sectors. This session will consider how disputes arising out of those investments are being resolved in key jurisdictions and sectors such as energy, infrastructure, commodities, shipping and insurance.
