Africa and arbitration – is London still relevant?
A LIDW21 member-hosted event.

Stewarts is pleased to co-host this event with Clyde & Co, Hogan Lovells and AELEX.

Daniel Wilmot, Partner, Stewarts, London, UK

Nathan Searle, Partner, Hogan Lovells, London, UK

The panel will discuss London’s role in Africa-related arbitrations, including:
(1) The global trend of rising nationalism has shown up in Africa, with many arguing for the resolution of African disputes by Africans on the Continent. What is the role of the global arbitration community in this trend and the English courts’ role?
(2) New growth frontiers in Africa: are London’s arbitral players placed to keep a-pace?
(3) South Africa’s International Arbitration Act and its role in facilitating parties to choose African seats.
(4) Opportunities for African arbitrators in a virtual environment and disputes trends arising from Africa’s technology boom.
