Tokyo Dispute Resolution & Crisis Management – September 2019

Celebrating King & Spalding’s 4th Tokyo Anniversary and 35th Tokyo Dispute Resolution and Crisis Management Newsletter

It was three years ago in October 2016 that we celebrated King & Spalding’s First Tokyo Anniversary and provided an overview of the first 10 editions of our Tokyo Dispute Resolution and Crisis Management Newsletter. It is amazing that a further three years have passed and another 25 editions of our newsletter.  We hope that in some small way our newsletter programme has been a positive addition to the legal education and knowledge of those we reach.

Given both the scale and scope of King & Spalding’s global disputes platform, we have sought to touch upon a wide range of topics of potential interest to our readers. We list below the newsletters from over the last two years, which feature lead articles on, amongst others, international arbitration, national court litigation, global investigations and jurisdictions from the Philippines to Spain to the US. Those lead articles are then accompanied by in excess of 300 supporting articles and news features:
