PANEL 2 | From The Ground Up – Taking A Pre-Emptive and Holistic View of International Arbitration Clauses in Order to Avoid the Pitfalls of International Arbitration | Churchill Room

Arbitration is an increasingly attractive dispute resolution mechanism for disputants worldwide. It has proven itself to be resilient to global shocks and, generally, a reliable mechanism. International arbitration is not without its risks when it comes to the conduct of international arbitration and the enforcement of awards. The problems often arise because of an incomplete or unclear arbitration agreement. Nonetheless, the risks and pitfalls can often be considered and mitigated by the parties to ensure that any arbitration – just like the transaction underlying the parties’ relationship – reflects the parties’ clear agreement. This panel will draw from a broad array of legal and business professionals to discuss the best approaches to negotiating, agreeing and drafting arbitration provisions. Recent case law will be discussed and considered to assist professionals in their assessment of arbitration for international matters.

1.5 CLE Credits

1:45 pm - 3:00 pm

PANEL 3 | How Should We Deter Lawyers from Being Professional Enablers of Kleptocracy and Grand Corruption? | WGH Large Common Room

The Russian invasion of Ukraine and attempt to impose sanctions on a wide range of individuals close to the Putin regime has shone a spotlight on the professional service providers in global financial centers who act for them. It is widely claimed that such professionals, including lawyers, are enabling or facilitating kleptocracy and grand corruption through the provision of these services. Campaigners argue for tighter regulation and strong penalties; the legal profession cites the right to representation and the fact that the services being provided are within the law. This panel will explore whether it is possible to find a middle ground which respects long-sanding legal principles while slowing down the flow of facilitating services to those who are corrupt.

Topics include:
• What is behind the recent upswing in activity in the UK and Europe? What are the factors that may limit the growth of this market?
• How have economic principles and analysis been applied in the US context to assess issues of loss causation, materiality, damages and reliance? To what extent can similar approaches be applied in other jurisdictions?

PANEL 14 | Art at War | Churchill Room

The impetus for having this topic as the focus of the Conference is, of course, the war in Ukraine. It is against that troubling background that the Conference will examine and discuss the various ways in which law intersects with war and armed conflict. This includes the legal framework of war; the functions of relevant international organizations and the role of the legal profession.

The panel will consist of legal experts and experts from academia and the public sphere. The Panel will look at ways in which a country might protect its works of art and cultural heritage in times of conflict; consider national and international legal frameworks relevant to the protection of art and cultural heritage; and look at the challenges inherent in enforcing legal rights in and to disputed works of art and cultural objects.

There will be expert insight into UK government policy in relation to the protection of cultural heritage in the Iraq conflict and the ethical role of the military in preserving cultural objects in a conflict zone. The role of UNESCO and the Blue Shield will be explained and examined.

The discussion will also involve a representative from a national institution (national museum/art gallery) who will explore the involvement of state institutions in the collection of works of art from conflict zones; the legal frameworks; and whether objects of cultural heritage can or should be repatriated to their countries of origin.

PANEL 15 | Is Remote Working Remotely Possible? The Impact of COVID on the Remote Working Legal Landscape | WGH Large Common Room

Airbnb recently announced that its employees would be able to permanently work remotely without any pay cuts or caps on raises. This new policy embraces the new future of working remotely, allowing employees to work from anywhere, even while travelling in other countries. While more companies are being creative in balancing changing employee expectations with the desire to maintain efficiency and productivity, how many have fully grasped the legal and practical considerations of a fully remote workforce?

This panel seeks to explore the legal issues that arise from remote working arrangements and the potential legal risks of such fully remote or hybrid models of work. Employment law experts from a variety of jurisdictions compare how issues that arise from this are being approached in their respective jurisdictions, including:
• Secure transmission of proprietary information
• Impact of remotely working on independent contractor vs. employee status?
• Enforcement of non-compete covenants across borders
• Workmen compensation for remote workplace accidents
• Equal treatment of remote vs. on-site workers


At the end of this program, attendees should be able to:
1) Identify the unique challenges and strategies to maintain privacy and security of sensitive information
2) Describe the legal test in each jurisdiction when determining whether a remote worker is an independent contractor or an employee
3) Understand the complexities of enforcement surrounding non-compete covenants when employees cross borders
4) Understand liability for workmen compensation in remote workplace accidents
5) identify the risk of discrimination faced by remote workers and how to mitigate against such risks

PANEL 16 | Managing “Behavioural Risk” in The Context of Corporate Culture and ESG | Great Hall

As investor interest in environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations is on the rise, companies face the challenge of not only implementing a “good” corporate culture, but also demonstrating to regulators and investors how their culture aligns with their ESG goals. Investors aim to identify companies with better (or substandard) ethical cultures, and seek new sources of data for ESG aligned investing. The panelists will discuss how data and behavioral science-informed techniques can help improve corporate culture, and how innovations in culture assessment can help ESG investing.

1.5 CLE Credits

10:45 am – 12:00 pm

PANEL 17 | Court Orders for Oral Evidence and Disclosure by Non-Parties in Support of Foreign Arbitration Proceedings: The Changing Picture in England and the US | Churchill Room

Following the major decision of the US Supreme Court in Luxshare limiting the scope of 28 U.S.C. §1782, and the decision of the English Court of Appeals in A v C extending similar powers, the ability of litigants to obtain the aid of courts in England and America in taking evidence from non-parties in support of foreign arbitral proceedings has changed enormously in just a few years. Further changes may be on the horizon in England with the ongoing review of these powers by the Law Commission.

In an area which raises important questions about the interaction between arbitration and the courts, this panel draws together leading practitioners from both the US and the UK to discuss the recent developments in England and America, and the future scope of these powers on both sides of the Atlantic, including the future of §1782 type relief in federal courts.

PANEL 21 | Show Me the Money: Asset Protection in High-Net-Worth Global Divorce Cases | WGH Large Common Room

High-net-worth divorce clients tend to have assets located across the globe especially considering the rise of cross-cultural marriages. When the spouses seek to divorce, a court may have limitations on compelling information on overseas assets, valuing those assets, or mandating a disposition of those assets. Given that courts are limited in addressing division of marital assets located outside of its reach, it is important to work with high-net-worth clients at the time of marriage to employ an asset protection plan should a divorce be an eventuality.

Expert panelists will discuss the selection of marital property regimes and memorializing asset division in a valid and enforceable global prenuptial agreement. Panelists will discuss strategies to shield assets and employ sophisticated tax strategies. Panelists will also touch on topics of international evidence and discovery concerning international assets as well as various approaches in dividing international marital assets.
