Webinar: commercial litigation - new and emerging themes in litigation
Our next commercial litigation webinar explores the latest themes and topics across the litigation spectrum.
There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the landscape for many organisations and the risks to businesses have rapidly evolved. With the huge shift to agile working and the restrictions imposed on businesses by the UK Government, cyber breaches, data protection and business interruption insurance cover are just some of the areas that businesses are having to quickly find ways to mitigate.
In this session, we will provide an update on the following issues:
- Test and trace: what will you do with all of that data?
The COVID-19 test and trace systems mean that many organisations are dealing with an exponential increase in the collection and storage of customer data. Edward Rees will explore the latest data protection issues for businesses to take into account in respect of COVID and contact tracing.
- COVID-19 Business Interruption Insurance
On 15 September 2020, the High Court handed down its judgment in the Financial Conduct Authority test case to determine issues of principle relating to coverage under specimen policy wordings governing COVID-19 business interruption claims. Laura Pennells will look at the highly-anticipated guidance and discuss the key issues for businesses arising from the judgment.
- The review of judicial review: Call for Evidence
In considering the Independent Review of Administrative Law's recent Call for Evidence on how well judicial review balances the legitimate interest of citizens to challenge public bodies against the role of those bodies in carrying on the business of government, our team will look at the latest updates in the review of judicial review and what might be the lasting impact on the public's right to challenge the lawfulness of public body decision making.
There is an opportunity to submit questions on the registration page on any of these issues that the panel can answer during the session. Please note the register button will take you to an external Zoom page.
This session will be recorded and made available after the webinar. To see the full details on how the data will be managed, please see our fair processing notice.
