FRA are delighted to be sponsoring this year’s CDR Autumn Arbitration Symposium. CDR’s Autumn Arbitration Symposium, now in its sixth successive year, comes as the field of arbitration continues to evolve. It will focus on current and future trends and the most pressing challenges that practices face as we approach the end of 2019.
FRA Partner, Andrew Maclay, will be joining the panel ‘What is the value of your claim: assessing financial recovery in international arbitration?’
Assessing the extent of a loss that leads to international arbitration is usually both complex and contested. How should clients, law firms, litigation funders and consultants address such issues? What lessons can be learnt from past experience? What issues arise as to interest calculation and its relationship to the award? In this session, a panel of experienced practitioners will address these issues from their own extensive experience on the award of damages in international arbitration and will consider the questions that need to be answered in managing expectations, offering suggestions as to best practice.
Chair: David Brynmor Thomas QC, barrister, 39 Essex Chambers
Speakers: Paul Rathbone, senior partner, Osterwald Rathbone & Partners, Andrew Maclay, partner, Forensic Risk Alliance
