2024 DRI International Seminar Madrid

Anticipate and Minimise Disruptions for your Global Clients!

Join us for the next annual DRI International Seminar to reconnect with peers and make new connections in Madrid! The theme of this year's seminar is "Disruption." There have been several significant legal and regulatory developments which are impacting our global clients and disrupting business agendas. We expect more pressures in 2024, including the increasing risk of class actions and the rise of collective redress regimes across Europe; the maturing litigation funding market; the evolving regulation and liability frameworks around technology and artificial intelligence (AI); a growth in cybersecurity and data breach disputes; and the emergence of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) disputes and the dominance of AI. We will be joined by lawyers, in-house counsel, and other members of the legal industry to discuss how the disruption is intensifying and how global businesses need to keep pace or risk falling behind. There will also be a number of excellent opportunities to reconnect and network with friends and colleagues from around the world in the beautiful city of Madrid.

What You Will Learn:

  • Insight into the impact of legal and regulatory developments on global clients.
  • The increasing risk of class actions and the rise of collective redress regimes across Europe.
  • How to navigate the emergence of AI and its evolving regulation and liability frameworks.
  • Strategies for overcoming disruptions and growing pressure on business agendas in the coming year.

Expand Your Network By:

  • Reconnecting with friends and colleagues from around the world.
  • Meeting new contacts and networking with leading in-house lawyers.
  • Joining the DRI International Business Meeting to discuss plans for the year ahead.
