The Expert Panel: Managing Disputes

Complex business disputes can be long, expensive and emotional.

Join Keith Ruddock, former General Counsel of The Weir Group (and previously a lawyer with Shell for over 25 years), as he discusses with an expert panel what the best ways are for in-house counsel to manage disputes.

The series covers technical and non-technical topics, including how best to prepare and handle witnesses, who may be senior stakeholders within your business.

Keith is joined by an all-star cast consisting of Brian Perrott (Partner at HFW), Narinder Jhittay (Barrister at Maitland Chambers) and Elizabeth Montpetit (Managing Associate at Mishcon de Reya).
