Speakers: Simon Thorley QC
We are pleased to welcome Simon Thorley QC to speak to the UK group of AIPPI about alternative dispute resolution in an IP context. Simon has over 40 years of dealing with intellectual property disputes and considerable experience of intellectual property litigation both in the UK and in other jurisdictions; since ceasing to practice as a barrister, since 2014 he has joined Brick Court Chambers as a mediator and arbitrator, is a member of the LCIA and is on the IP Arbitration panels in Singapore, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur. He is also an international Judge of the Singapore International Commercial Court. He is thus well placed to address the benefits that alternative dispute resolution can provide.
This course is directed at all levels of practitioners with an interest in intellectual property and will provide them with an understanding of the issues relating to alternative dispute resolution.
