Global Arbitration Review is pleased to announce the launch of the first edition of GAR Live: Technology Disputes, taking place as part of California International Arbitration Week.

Our inaugural year in San Francisco will bring together leading practitioners from the US and internationally to discuss the notable developments happening in the world of technology and the increased risk of disputes likely to follow. Expect a full day of high-level discussion, with topics including how we define a tech dispute, drafting suitable clauses, ISDS and tech and a GAR debate on blockchain arbitration.

Join an audience of arbitrators, counsel, in-house practitioners, expert witnesses and more to network, debate and analyse the pressing developments in a sector that’s potentially ripe with disputes.
