Disruption & Resolution

We are delighted to invite you to Munich for the 2nd Annual Litigation Conference & 6th Annual T.R.A.D.E. Conference being hosted by the AIJA T.R.A.D.E and Litigation Commissions. In view of all kinds of disruptions our clients are facing, we wish to discuss the effective solutions available taking into account the latest developments in e-commerce, commercial contracting and resolution of international commercial disputes.

During the joint and separate sessions, we will address various topics in that regard. Collective redress, jurisdiction clauses, arbitrability, force majeure, hardship clauses and general terms and conditions are just a few of the issues that are relevant when it comes to prevention and resolution of disruptions. The seminar will examine such issues from all perspectives and offer a platform to exchange experience with respective contract drafting and international disputes.

In our panels we will be joined by lawyers, and in-house counsel, judges and providers of third party funding and asset tracing providing input and insights from practice and experience in different jurisdictions.

All of this will take place in the vibrant city of Munich! Munich is home to several big multinational corporations and a growing Tech hub. Come and enjoy the rich Bavarian culture and the urban night life. A fancy dinner and a traditional “Bier Fest” will make this event unforgettable.
