WHY ATTEND

While only a few years ago litigation was just another cost of doing business, it has become all too clear that regulatory action and litigation can pose a huge risk even to some of the world’s largest companies. The Lawyer’s Managing Risk and Litigation event is unique in the sense that it focuses not only on strategies for managing disputes but also on ways for preventing those disputes to arise in the first place.

With the increased focus on preventing litigation rather than just managing disputes, the 2019 programme will have a greater emphasis on current issues that pose significant risk to businesses was only natural, with discussions covering issues such as the pressure of the media, cyber-security and data breaches as well as the evolving anti-bribery and corruption regulation in key jurisdictions.

The 1-day conference will bring together 80+ in-house lawyers and compliance professionals from across the UK and Europe for an action-packed day of education, networking and inspiration on bringing innovation to risk and dispute resolution.
