 Technology (tech) start-ups and their related transactions involve concepts, strategy and structures that are constantly evolving. As expected with an industry that is still fast-developing, often, conflicts/disputes may arise and such disputes may vary in their complexity depending on the transaction and the claim involved. The disputes may be founded on certain factors including the founder’s failure to protect its interests, the investors lack of knowledge about the industry, regulatory requirements and practice of the start-up and its objectives, and failure to unify the interests of all stakeholders (investors, founders, management, regulators etc.). The conference proposes to focus on the intricacies and modalities of tech related transactions; the role of regulation in the success of these start-ups; risks that may be encountered in related transactions; and how to mitigate risks and manage and resolve disputes involving tech start-ups.

 A one-day seminar which will feature a keynote speaker and other sessions facilitated by experts and regulators within the tech industry including legal practitioners, in-house legal counsel, managers/partners in fintech start-ups, etc. Each session will include a short presentation by a facilitator and will be followed with a panel of facilitators discussing issues. The discussion will be structured in an interview style with questions raised by the moderator and participants. In discussing the dispute management and resolution aspects of the seminar sessions, the facilitators are expected to highlight the features of the LACIAC Arbitration Rules, Mediation Rules and ODR platforms
