The East Anglia branch invites you to an online event presented by Lindy Patterson QC FCIArb who is a fulltime arbitrator, adjudicator and dispute board member with 39 Essex Chambers. She arbitrates in a variety of civil and common law jurisdictions in commercial, construction and energy related disputes.
The world of dispute resolution is small and both domestically and internationally the pool of arbitrators is not large. With the Halliburton v Chubb decision eagerly awaited from the Supreme Court, where are we going with disclosure by dispute resolvers? How do you apply the test of apparent bias in practice? Lindy Patterson QC will review the latest cases and rules on disclosure and where we are left with Halliburton v Chubb.
The talk will appeal to dispute resolvers in various forms of alternative dispute resolution in particular those involved in arbitration. It will suit experienced dispute resolvers and newcomers in this form of dispute resolution now and in the future.
Cost: Access to this event is free for CIArb members and non-members, however pre-registration is required. A link will be sent out nearer the time.
Registration: to register, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org confirming your name and registration to the event.
