Join Burford Capital for a webcast highlighting key findings from Burford’s research and discussing tangible solutions for businesses and their law firms to promote diversity in the leadership of commercial disputes.
57% of GCs say diversity of outside counsel is an important attribute for the law firms they work with, but nearly half (47%) cite lack of relationships with diverse outside counsel in their networks as an obstacle to appointing more diverse litigation teams.
The businesses that hire law firms to represent them in significant litigation and arbitration have a significant role to play in advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in the legal profession. New research shows how senior in-house lawyers are exercising their considerable influence in this area and the barriers they see to the appointment of diverse litigation arbitration counsel.
During this webcast, panelists will highlight key findings from the research and discuss tangible solutions for businesses and their law firms to promote diversity in the leadership of commercial disputes. The webcast will take place at 10:30AM EST | 9:30AM CST | 3:30PM GMT.
