​Harneys partner to speak at C5 conference in Geneva

Harneys partner Jonathan Addo will speak at the 12th Annual C5 Fraud, Asset Tracing & Recovery Conference in Geneva which is being held from 15-16 March 2018 at Hotel President Wilson, Geneva.
Jonathan will speak as part of a panel on a session entitled “Fair Hearings or Quick Ones? Is Independence a Charade?” Panellists also include Richard Millet QC, Essex Court (UK) and  Paul Gully-Hart, Schellenberg Wittmer (Switzerland).  The panel will review:

  • when it’s not just the parties who are dishonest: Strategies for dealing with experts who are biased or dishonest;
  • arbitrators who are too squeamish to find fraud;
  • judges who don’t provide fair hearings?
  • when the expert’s conclusions contradict the client’s case: the illusion of independence or hiding behind?
