On 29th April 2019, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for ADR (to which CIArb is Secretariat) will be hosting an evidence session entitled “London’s Future as an International Dispute Resolution Centre”.
This session will involve MPs questioning experts to learn how ADR can facilitate international trade, what makes the UK a leading international dispute resolution hub and what the future holds for the UK’s global status in the field.
Specifically, the APPG will be exploring:
Jonathan Wood (Head of International Arbitration at RPC, CIArb Chair of the Board of Trustees)
Lucy Greenwood (independent arbitrator and CIArb Trustee)
Jordan Cummins (CBI Senior Associate Director—London Policy)
Audley Sheppard QC (Partner at Clifford Chance; Chair of the Board of the LCIA)
Confirmed MPs include John Howell, Christina Rees, Bob Neill, John Spellar and Alberto Costa.
The session will be held on Monday 29th April (15.00-17.00) in The Thatcher Room, Portcullis House. (For directions, please visit the Parliament visitor page. Visitors should allow at least 30 minutes to get through security at the Portcullis House entrance). Please note this is a change of venue from that originally advertised.
