This breakout session will explore issues related to group claims and how they facilitate access to justice. For example, what hurdles do claimants face? And is the balance correct between special costs treatment for claimants and costs protection for defendants against vexatious litigation? The session will cover topics including the future of collective actions and the opt in and out debate. It will also include comparisons with group actions in other jurisdictions – in particular, what London does well and how it can improve. Finally, the session will consider the aggregation of claims for insurance purposes and the consequent impact on group actions.

Covid-19 Update - LIDW POSTPONED

To all our colleagues, friends and partners in the international disputes community.

In light of Covid-19, the LIDW events that are currently scheduled to take place in September will be postponed until the week of 10 May 2021.

While this is disappointing, we are keen that the international disputes community is able to make the most of the exciting programme of sessions that we have lined up so we can build on the momentum that LIDW2019 created. We look forward to developing that with you when it is safer for us all to be together in person.

We have been greatly encouraged by the response to the programme and look forward to the rescheduled event delivering crucial insights into the future of the business and law of international dispute resolution. Any ticket purchases already made for the 2020 event will carry over to 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you to the event in person in May 2021.
