Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Purpose of the Practice Group

 

Experts from all over the world stay connected to discuss the broad field of litigation and arbitration, and exchange experiences and knowledge, develop tactics, strategies and proceedings and make use of synergies.
Litigation and Dispute Resolution group members will stay connected to international information and issues relevant to areas of their practice.
