The event will start at 12.00 PM with Michael Edenborough QC and Stephanie Wickenden opening the session, introducing the speakers and giving some key thoughts on how the litigation environment has changed.

Mark Kramer (Potter Clarkson)Alexandra Pygall (Stephenson Harwood), and Mauro Paiano (Shakespeare Martineau) will each contribute their expert knowledge on the pre-action stage, the effective use, or avoidance of press and social media, multi-jurisdictional disputes, and creative settlement approaches - including licensing and co-existence agreements.
