LIDW21 - Climate change and commercial risks

Wednesday, May 12, 2021

Climate Change Risk Practice


Clyde & Co is proud to sponsor London International Disputes Week (LIDW) taking place on 10-14 May 2021. The theme of this year's conference is ‘Looking forward: change, challenge and opportunity’.

Member-hosted event by: HKA, Twenty Essex, White & Case and Clyde & Co.

The session will be chaired by Wendy Miles QC (Twenty Essex). The expert panellists are: Samantha Bakstad (BP), Mark Clarke (White & Case), Colin Johnson (HKA) and Richard Power (Clyde & Co).

Join our lively panel of experts who will be discussing:

  • How can clients draft contracts in order to minimise the risk of climate change related claims and ensure such claims are dealt with efficiently?
  • Will the global push for net zero result in a new wave of investor-state claims?
  • How are existing commercial contracts exposed to climate change-related litigation risk and are there any trends that can be identified in this regard?
  • Are damages awards part of the drivers toward net zero or just a result of it?
