Driving the future of international dispute resolution in London


LIDW22 is being held from 9-13 May where, through a series of events held both physically and virtually, dispute resolution professionals from around the globe gather physically and virtually to discuss and debate the future of dispute resolution and London’s place at the centre of that. 

With its theme: Dispute Resolution-Global, Sustainable, Ethical?, LIDW22 will take a critical look at the future of dispute resolution and its place in the post pandemic world. The centrepiece of the Week will be a two-day conference held at Central Hall Westminster.

We are delighted to be co-hosting the following session in collaboration with Baker McKenzie, IPOS Mediation, Farrer & Co:

Offshore trusts disputes – uniquely challenging?

Every dispute has its own technical and practical problems, but when trusts are involved there are unusual factors at play. 

Join us as we take a deep dive into the recent Wong v Grand View trial in Bermuda and look at how these factors interplay and make these disputes so challenging to navigate.

  • Every dispute has its own technical and practical problems, but when offshore trusts are involved, there are unusual factors at play. In this session, the panel will look at questions including
  • The multinational legal team – how onshore and offshore lawyers collaborate, and the challenges that can arise
  • What’s really going on? Separating the legal issues from family/personal disharmony
  • How to mitigate the family and business fallout and manage allegations of fraud and dishonesty
  • Mediation – push and pull factors for lawyers and clients engaged in high-value trust litigation
  • Can it settle? How the involvement of trustees, minors and unborns can change the outcome of mediation
