The first 100 days in a dispute

18:00 (SGT) | 12:00 (CEST)

All about what to do and what to expect in the—often pivotal—first 100 days of a dispute. Our panel of experts share their top learnings from their years of experience in international arbitration and other disputes.

The first 100 days in a dispute can determine whether you reach an amicable resolution with your counterparty or enter into a formal dispute resolution process, like arbitration. Interactions between the parties during this important period are usually the most intense. These interactions will influence how strong your position will be in any further commercial negotiations or arbitration.

This seminar aims to help businesses (including in-house counsel) navigate this tricky period most effectively.

For this seminar, the ICC has assembled a panel of experienced arbitrators, external counsel, and case management counsel from the ICC International Court of Arbitration. They have a diversity of perspectives and a wealth of anecdotes to share about the following topics and more:

  • preparing for the commencement of proceedings;
  • preparing to respond to proceedings that may be commenced against you;
  • checklists of pre-arbitral requirements, including things to consider when submitting a Request for Arbitration;
  • choosing arbitral institutions and arbitrators;
  • preserving documents and evidence;
  • tools and leverage for strategic engagement with counterparties; and
  • managing stakeholders’ expectations.

Please join us, in-person, at Freshfields’ Singapore office for a dialogue about these important considerations that can materially impact the course of a dispute. There will be opportunities for questions and discussions with our panellists, with networking to follow. 

Who should attend: In-house counsel with or without a disputes background, and anyone within a business who has to manage commercial disputes.
