Legal panel on Internet of Agreements conference proceedings Dec 16, 2017

On October 13th-16th, Mattereum hosted the first Internet of Agreements™ conference at the UK Government’s Digital Catapult in London. IoA™ is a vision for global supply chains and logistics, integrating national laws and regulation with international commerce through the application of technology such as blockchains and smart contracts.

On that day we also held a panel on dispute resolution and various topics at the intersection of law and blockchain technology. The panel comprised:

  • Adam Sanitt, Head of Disputes Knowledge at Norton Rose Fulbright.
  • Harriet Jones-Fenleigh, a litigation and dispute resolution lawyer based in London, specialising in cross-border commercial, banking, and finance litigation.
  • Christopher Wray, Mattereum’s Chief Legal Officer, a lawyer and mediator with experience in company law, intellectual property and legal project management.
  • Clive Freedman, a barrister, arbitrator and mediator specialising in commercial law; his practice covers information technology, banking and engineering, to name a few.
  • Peter Susman, Q.C., a barrister and arbitrator specialising in contract litigation, especially in complex commercial and high technology areas.

Harriet and Adam gave a quick overview of smart contract dispute resolution and some scenarios that Norton Rose Fulbright has considered, and the panelists then covered various topics in dispute resolution, blockchain law, and liability for errors arising from smart contracts.
