02 Apr 2019

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:

  • What is the current landscape of international commercial dispute resolution?
  • Why ADR is conducive to the smooth functioning of international trade
  • What makes London attractive as an arbitral seat?
  • What are the future challenges to London’s status as a global leader in dispute resolution and what policy responses can be implemented to meet those challenges?

Confirmed speakers:

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.

CIArb Members interested in the session are welcome to join as audience members. To reserve your place in the audience, please RSVP by contacting Robin Hayden at rhayden@ciarb.org. A full briefing and security instructions will be provided at a later date.
