A few days ago, Danielle Carr, lawyer at ONTIER UK, joined fellow panellists Swati Paul (General Counsel, London Luton Airport), Peter Limbert (General Counsel, Fulham Football Club) and Ted Greeno (Partner, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP) in sharing their expertise on 'At All Costs: Managing Contract Disputes'.
Drawing together commercial and dispute resolution experience, the panel provided insights on how best to anticipate, prepare for and manage contractual disputes.
In particular, the panel discussed the importance of drafting effective dispute resolution clauses in contracts and shared tips to reduce the risk of a dispute arising or escalating. The panel also looked at Alternative Dispute Resolution, including the suitability of arbitration and mediation in resolving contractual disputes.
Finally, the panel examined what happens when all else fails, including the path to litigation and recent developments in English court procedure.
