COMMERCIAL LITIGATION SUMMIT 2016
1 Wimpole Street, London, 24 May 2016
This years' Commercial Litigation Summit promises a day of great debate amongst the UK's most prominent individuals and corporations in the commercial litigation market place. Cogence Search is pleased to be supporting the Summit for the second year in a row.
Speakers at this prestigious event include Sir Bernard Eder; Tim Parkes of the FCA; Mr Justice Knowles; Richard Vary of Nokia; Laurence Rabinowitz QC; Davis Hart of BT; Prash Naik, GC of Channel 4; Ted Greeno of Quinn Emmanuels; and Simon Davis of Clifford Chance.
The panel debate sessions will cover:
The state of the judiciary
Managing legal costs and technlogy
Media litigation in the digital age
The financial services sector - regulations, costs, competition and class actions
Despite concerns over the the integrity of the judiciary after the recent proposed wave of cuts to pensions and an increasing administrative burden; spiralling costs of litigation; the need for reputation management; and the fast changing financial environment, Cogence recently found that the London litigation market is nevertheless buoyant. We recently interviewed four key players on the international stage and their views are published in our article 'Earth Has Not Anything to Show More Fair: The London Litigation Market'.
We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new players on 24th. A full line up and programme can be found here: http://www.legalbusiness.co.uk/index.php/events/6261-commercial-litigation-summit-2016-event-programmeBack to blog
