Ben Giaretta moderated a webinar on Wednesday 12 May, as part of London International Disputes Week (LIDW).
This session looked at how such factors impact dispute resolution, from the point of view of parties, counsel and decision-makers (judges, arbitrators etc.). Why do parties pursue claims or defences that appear (objectively) to be unlikely to succeed? What psychological tools are available to counsel, to help them persuade the decision-maker? And what are the limitations of human decision-making, that can affect how judges and arbitrators reach their decisions?
