Webinar - Preparing for claims in times of Covid-19

While many businesses are focusing on immediate issues caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, there is an increased sense of urgency to prepare for potential claims. In some jurisdictions, there has already been a double-digit increase in suits filed in the first half of April, of which a significant number mentioned the coronavirus.

Cédric Alter and other experts will discuss the types of claims and lawsuits that can arise, be it insurance claims for business interruption, claims against business partners for breach of contract, or lawsuits against government stemming from Covid-19 relief packages. In addition to identifying the claims that may arise, this webinar will explain how businesses can quantify their economic losses and manage their disputes efficiently at a time when local courts will be facing backlogs for the foreseeable future. 

The agenda is as follows:

10.00 – Introduction word by Erica Stein (Chair)

10.05 – The benefits of arbitration and ADR in times of uncertainty by Olivier van der Haegen

10.25 – Quantifying potential claims – Evidence and use of experts in arbitration and ADR by Cédric Alter & Kami Zargar

10.55 – Tips & tricks for virtual hearings by Niuscha Bassiri

11.15 – Questions & Answers

11.25 – Conclusion
