Stevens & Bolton is delighted to have co-hosted this London International Disputes Week session with XXIV Old Buildings. The international panel discussion looked at the challenges of obtaining reliable witness evidence in international disputes.
In the webinar, we discuss:
- Different approaches taken in different jurisdictions and their advantages and drawbacks
- The steps that lawyers can usefully and legitimately take to help their clients prepare to give witness evidence.
- How recollection evidence is impacted by the volume of contemporaneous electronic communications
- How practitioners can obtain the best evidence without inadvertently causing that evidence to change?
- Whether reforms to the CPR help or hinder this process
The panel included Sarah Murray of Stevens & Bolton, Heather Murphy of XXIV Old Buildings, Raymond Aghaian of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP, Emanuele Breggia of hi.lex and Nick Dunne of Walkers.
