Private Equity disputes – Clawing their way back?

The post-Covid economic recovery has seen high levels of M & A activity, with private equity firms eager to deploy funds following a muted 2020. Nichola Leach will discuss whether this is likely to lead to an upswing in private equity related disputes and the potential battlegrounds between the interested parties.

LIBOR transition: Where are we and what happens next?

With LIBOR ceasing to exist at the end of this year, Jean-Martin Louw will give an overview of the latest developments in the LIBOR transition process and discuss the consequences for UK agreements that still reference the benchmark.

Crypto fraud – The English Court flexes its muscles

The English courts are increasingly willing to use the full range of their world-leading information gathering and enforcement tools to assist the victims of crypto fraud. Ryan Lynch will discuss the recent case of Fetch ai v Persons Unknown and Others, which involved a sophisticated fraud using unauthorised access to the claimant’s accounts on a cryptocurrency exchange.

The seminar will be followed by a Q & A session.

Chaired by Robin Henry, Partner.
