Join us at the Northern Club on Thursday 14 February for our first breakfast for the year, when we will hear from Lauren Lindsay on:
Drafting a dispute resolution clause that is fit for purpose.
Mediators, arbitrators and litigators encounter dispute resolution clauses on a regular basis. The quality of these clauses often ranges from “fit for purpose” to completely ineffective. The time for assessing the adequacy of your dispute resolution clause is when negotiating the contract, not litigating it.
Drawing on her experience in advising transactional colleagues, Lauren will outline the “must-haves” of effective dispute resolution clauses, the objectives they serve and how they may be tailored to meet a client’s specific needs. Lauren will also explore some of the more complex provisions (such as “waterfall” clauses) that arise in practice and discuss techniques that arbitrators and mediators may adopt to overcome deficient dispute resolution clauses.
Lauren Lindsay is a commercial litigator and international arbitration practitioner. She has extensive experience in drafting and/or advising on dispute resolution clauses concerning all types of contracts, including complex multi-party, multi-contract transactions. Before re-joining Bankside Chambers in November 2018 Lauren was a senior associate in Allen & Overy LLP’s international arbitration team, based in London.
