Attend the English Law and Arbitration Conference in Baku

Leading English lawyers, Pinsent Masons LLP (solicitors), Lamb Chambers (barristers), Smith & Williamson (forensic accountants) and CSI Group (investigators) are organising an international conference on International Arbitration and English Law. The Conference will take place on 1 October 2019 in Baku, Azerbaijan. It will cover important legal issues that can help companies avoid or resolve legal disputes arising from English Law and/or arbitral agreements. CIS Arbitration Forum is an information partner of the event.

An innovative feature of the conference is that it will combine presentations, interactive sessions and training (workshop-type) sessions. The speakers and the audience will be able to participate in a case-study. This will cover various topics related to international arbitration and English law and, in particular, arbitrations seated in London, governed by the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) rules or agreements governed by English Law.

Attending the Conference will give participants an opportunity to learn about the latest English legal developments, including:

  • Challenges to the issue and the stay of legal proceedings due to any disputes subject to arbitration clauses.
  • New developments in the conduct of arbitrations and, in particular, disclosure available to parties pursuant to the Rules on the Efficient Conduct of Proceedings in International Arbitration (“Prague Rules”).
  • Court powers exercisable in support of arbitration proceedings.
  • Challenges to arbitration awards on the grounds of serious irregularity or an appeal on a point of law.
  • Third-party funding of arbitration, security for costs and recent developments as regards the recoverability of funding costs.
  • Selecting the arbitrator, including issues regarding the arbitrator’s disclosure of information relevant to their appointment.
  • Relief and remedies available to the tribunal, including remedies beyond monetary payments.

The conference and training sessions will last for one day and will be free to attend.
