A Message From The Chair

Global Private Litigation Conference - May 7-8, 2017

William MacLeodAll roads lead to Amsterdam on May 7-8, 2017 for our inaugural Global Private Litigation Conference - and to insights into the continuing path of multi-jurisdictional and collective antitrust redress, presented by a world-class line-up of private plaintiff and defense litigators, as well as government enforcers, economists, corporate counsel, and academics from around the globe.

CLE sessions will address topics including, among others, the private enforcement regimes in the "battleground" jurisdictions and the impact of Brexit; claims aggregation, claims assignment, and litigation funding techniques; pass-on and allocation; and structuring settlements in pursuit of "global peace."

The Conference will kick off with a "don't miss" networking canal cruise on Sunday evening, followed by the full-day slate of panels on Monday, all in a unique conference space in the heart of the Netherlands' capital during the world-renowned tulip season.

Come early and explore this fabulous city -- home to sights as diverse as Keukenhof Park (with its blooming tulips and other spring bulbs), the Hague, the Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank House, the world's oldest stock exchange, and of course the famous "coffee shops."

We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam for this trailblazing event!
