IBA Annual Litigation Forum

The International Bar Association hosted their three day Annual Litigation Forum around the theme of ‘Disruption in Litigation – New Types of Disputes in a New World Order’ in Berlin from 8 to 10 May.

Hausfeld’s Wolf H Von Bernuth co-chaired the ‘Collective Redress – the European Approach’ session, alongside Clément Dupoirier of Herbert Smith Freehills in the morning of 9th May. 

With a wide range of hot topics as set out below, the sessions prompted lively debate.

  • Collective redress – opt-in versus opt-out or is it asking the wrong question? 
  • Geopolitics in court 
  • Disputes arising from artificial intelligence
  • Cryptocurrencies

As a Social Event Sponsor we were pleased many were able to attend the Welcome Reception at the Käfer Roof Garden of the Reichstag Building where there was the opportunity to meet with Anthony Maton, Lianne Craig, David Lawne and Alex Petrasincu from our UK and German offices.
