The role of the international dispute lawyer is becoming ever more complex as the landscape in which we practice changes dramatically. It is not just the threat to the legal profession itself that is of concern, but also geopolitical forces, such as the continued threat to the European project and global unease as old alliances fracture. Within this new reality, international dispute lawyers remain focused, determined, and open-minded. At this seminar, you will learn how Brexit affects the disputes world, how corporations will deal with the surge in human rights litigation, whether US-style class actions will eventually take hold in Europe, and other important issues. A Women in the Law breakout session will be presented, discussing personal and professional innovation, how to develop rainmaking skills, and the increasingly important issue of bias.
WilmerHale Counsel Michelle Glassman Bock will participate in a panel alongside lawyers from Switzerland, Israel and Argentina in a session titled “Reflections on Negotiation Strategies and Dispute Settlement.” The panelists will reflect on the best timing, the best negotiation format and the right ambience for settlement discussions.
