Event Overview

Asian Legal Business is proud to present the Virtual Asia Disputes Resolution Forum 2021. The virtual event gathers together international and regional arbitrators, in-house counsels, legal practitioners and industry experts to discuss recent developments in Asia Pacific's arbitration practices, hot pressing legal issues and the suitable practice solutions in the region in these trying times.

The pandemic is here to stay and not going anytime soon, and prolonged business problems will continue to affect several market players. As anticipated, this has resulted to a rise in increasingly complex disputes across all industries. COVID-19 significantly increased the number and type of cross-border commercial disputes as several companies wavered and were not able to perform their contractual duties. This virtual forum aims to address some of the burning questions on how to effectively manage cross-border commercial arbitration and disputes resolution in the new normal. Our legal experts will also provide their insights on applicable dispute tactics to suit the new normal, current ICC Arbitration Rules 2021, the impact of Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) Technology on Dispute Resolution and more.
