A webinar presented by the IBA Senior Lawyers Committee and supported by the IBA Law Firm Management Committee

The rise of nationalism, combined with the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the evolution of technology to make remote working more readily available, have all contributed to a re-examination of the concept of a global economy. Add to that China’s reappraisal of its domestic economic policy through its 'dual-circulation' strategy, India’s 'self-reliance' movement, the unfinished business of Brexit, the rearrangement of supply chains and trade routes and the complex web of sanctions that have sprung up over the past few years, and the once generally-accepted notion of a thoroughly interconnected world seems to be fading away. But is it?

This webinar will examine the trends and their significance for cross-border practices and firms dedicated to international relationships, and consider strategies to address them.
