Cross-Border Risks & Opportunities in Emerging Technology – The ADR Challenge, London, 12 July 2018

Jams LOGOJAMS are organising an afternoon seminar on ADR in the context of emerging technologies, to be held in London on 12 July 2018 (click here for more details). I will be speaking on a panel that discusses emergency relief in arbitration with a focus on intellectual property. This will provide an opportunity to look at the ICC Emergency Arbitrator Provisions introduced in 2012, and at the new DIS Rules, that came into force in March 2018, and under which the arbitral tribunal now has the power to grant ex parte preliminary relief. 

The other panels will look at “5G and the Internet Of Things – ADR of disputes relating to Standard Essential Patents” and at “ADR in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The seminar is from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., to be followed by drinks and canapés. And here is the line-up of speakers and moderators:
