WEBINAR 3:

Panel: BIG DATA & LITIGATION DECISION MAKING IN THE PANDEMIC

1030-1200 BST

 Big Data & litigation decision making in the pandemic and post pandemic era. High value litigation decision making has historically been based purely on expertise, experience and “gut feeling”. With the advent of litigation analytics in The USA and more recently in the UK, this is beginning to change as data is becoming part of the way in which these high-risk business decisions are made.

- The arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic has altered the picture further. With a surge of high value and complex disputes expected data will be critical to not just anticipating outcome but also in maintaining a grasp and understanding of market dynamics for firms, banks, insurers and other corporates as well as for litigation funders and insurers. How data is used and analysed will be critical to this future picture and the panel will explore the opportunities and challenges.
