About The Conclave

While the global economy gathers pace, there are challenges emerging for all business. Social media and society are demanding more accountability, transparency and ethics from government and business.  Corporate misconduct, financial crime, tax havens and corruption while seemingly more common are being exposed in the media and the public are demanding action. Transnational markets like Europe have experienced Brexit where countries are turning inwards, not necessarily looking outwards.

What People Say?

  • Hon’ble Justice Arjan Sikri Supreme Court of India

    Globalisation and liberalisation of the Indian economy has had some impact and relevance as far as the judicial system of this country is concerned. We can ease FDI in India by having a good judicial system. A system which is not only fearless and independent but at the same time, delivers speedy justice. Arbitration still remains one of the chosen methods for resolution of disputes; it has existed and survived. And people still have faith in arbitration. As someone said, arbitration must have existed since the dawn of commerce, so it is going to stay.
  • Dr Lalit Bhasin, Society of Indian Law Firms (SILF)

    I think arbitration has not taken off in India. It has not been able to - despite the repeated changes in law. And we should examine and introspect the reasons for it; one reason being judicial intervention”. Lavishing praise on Legal Era Magazine, Dr Bhasin said, “It is not just a law magazine. It is a partner in the legal development of the country and also a very valuable associate in legal education. Legal Era is a part of the legal fraternity.
  • Ravi Shankar Prasad, Govt. Of India

    I m very happy to know that the Indian law practice is changing gear, professionalism is coming in, and all this is an indication of an emerging New India– an India of opportunity and hope. I am sure with this new India of hope, larger opportunity awaits and this competition is going to become tougher.
  • Justice B.N. Srikrishna, Supreme Court of India

    Kudos to Legal Era for holding a very well organized Conclave and Awards function! The variety and the facets covered were very impressive. Good going, Legal Era. Best wishes for greater success in coming years!
  • Hon. Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw, Delhi High Court

    Arbitration clause needs to be looked at seriously. What is happening today is that the arbitration clause is just lifted and pasted and it’s a one clause fits all scenario. If attention is paid to drafting of the Arbitration clause, anticipating the kind of disputes which are likely to arise and the mode in which the parties intend the same to be arbitrated, it can make arbitration proceedings expeditious and efficacious and also limit challenge to arbitration awards. Some authors call it the mid night clause, taken up at the fag end when the negotiating parties are drained of energy to pay any attention thereto. If a solution for all likely problems is provided in the arbitration clause, including costs of arbitrators, the arbitrators at the time of accepting to be arbitrators, will know what it entails.
  • Justice Ajit Prakash Shah

    I have mixed feelings about the new arbitration act. It is the kind of feeling that one gets when one has achieved something but it is still incomplete. This is what I feel when I think about the new arbitration law. I am very happy that the 246th report of the Law Commission of India was accepted and the law was finally enacted. As the Chairperson, when the law was drafted, it was something to be proud of. What upsets me is that the language in the law is distorted in some places which does not make sense.
  • Justice Deepak Verma, Supreme Court of India

    Well I had not expected that it will be such a mega and grand event! To be very honest I am completely satisfied about the manner in which the Legal Era awards 2013 has been organised, the manner in which it has been conducted, and the manner in which it was hosted, everything was perfect! It didn’t require any further improvement, keep it up.
  • David T. Blonder, BlackBerry

  • Mark Davis, Microchip Technology Inc.

    This is one of the best conferences I have ever attended and I was glad to have been able to be part of it. I had a wonderful time and hope to attend more conferences like this in the future.
  • Mladen Vukmir, Vukmir & Associates

    I tremendously enjoyed the interactions with my Indian colleagues and was flattered to participate in such a great panel.
  • Andre Yeap, SC, Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP

    If there is a BIT agreement, then certainly one should look at the BIT agreement to see if there is a need first for any domestic relieves to be exhausted before pursuing a BIT. In a certain way litigants only have some amount of sources.
