Handling parallel proceedings and lessons learnt for future litigation | Disputes Week
Parallel proceedings are common in many fields of litigation, particularly where civil proceedings run alongside regulatory investigations or criminal proceedings. They are also common in IP litigation because IP rights are territorial in nature. This session will look at the practical points to consider when parallel proceedings are initiated in respect of the same or related underlying dispute. We also will look discuss at common problems and strategies to overcome them such as confidentiality, central coordination, costs management, how to manage the impact of decisions made in one set of proceedings on another, timing and how to decide which goes first, maintaining privilege, the pros and cons of using the same experts/witnesses, enforcement of parallel judgments and maintaining parallel relief proceedings (such as injunctions).
