London International Disputes Week - member hosted event

A stellar panel featuring Lord Hoffmann from Brick Court, Lisa Webb from Which?, Philip Shepherd QC from Chambers of Philip Shepherd QC and chair Ned Beale from Hausfeld, explored the dynamics of public interest interventions in commercial cases.

A popular topic in light of the much publicised Supreme Court interventions during 2020, including Which? in Merricks v Mastercard, the All Party Parliamentary Group on Fair Business Banking in Marex v Sevilleja and arbitral institutions in Halliburton v Chubb, the panel discussed:

  • How interventions influence judicial decision making – do they make better law?
  • How intervenors can maximise their input and impact.
  • Practical tips for counsel and solicitors dealing with intervenors.

This panel brought together the perspective of judges, intervenors and practitioners representing commercial parties.
