London holds international appeal as a global centre for dispute resolution – whether through its courts or by arbitration, mediation, expert determination or negotiation – built upon a rich tradition of English law dating back to the Magna Carta. London International Disputes Week (LIDW) celebrates London as a leading centre for handling international dispute resolution and is taking place this year between 15th and 19th May. LIDW23 builds on the success of its three previous successful events and strives to be a forward-thinking and inclusive forum for discussion embracing legal London’s commitment to diversity.

The week features a core conference surrounded by collaborative events co-hosted by Member Organisations. We are proud to be a Member of LIDW and will be involved in several Member-hosted events throughout the week covering a range of areas of dispute resolution. More information and registration for these events is available via the links below. LIDW23 is hybrid event attracting audiences from jurisdictions globally.
