Global Disputes in 2021 – A Renewed Perspective

On Demand
On Demand
As we move through the final quarter of 2021, COVID-19, geopolitical strife, newly evolving technologies and racial inequity are still having a significant impact on our changing world – and on the disputes landscape. However, corporations and individuals are showing an incredible ability to tap into their reserve of resilience and prepare for the unexpected.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we at Reed Smith have postponed all upcoming in-person events.

As with many global organizations, we are generally following the guidance of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; however, we are also monitoring guidance at the state level in the US as well as guidance issued by other public health authorities as it applies to our offices. Where there is any ambiguity, we are erring on the side of caution.

We look forward to hosting you again in person in the future. In the meantime, please visit our webinars page for a full listing of our virtual events.
