We are delighted to invite you to an evening in Colombo as we discuss some of the key topics and recent updates in commercial, construction and investment treaty arbitration.

Featuring speakers from our London, Singapore and Hong Kong offices and the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC), our subject matter experts will take you through the latest developments in cross-border dispute resolution and what they mean for you and your organisation.
