Combar India 4th Annual Roundtable Conference, Mumbai 11/ 12th September 2020 – postponed until September 2021
David Joseph QC confirmed there would be no meeting this year and that it would be probably be pushed back to September 2021. There were no plans at present with so much uncertainty.
The Combar India Committee was established in 2016 to promote links between the English commercial and arbitration Bar and their counterparts in India, taking advantage of the two jurisdictions’ shared legal heritage and frequent opportunities for cross-border work.
We have successfully set up and organised annual Roundtable Conferences in Delhi and in Mumbai at which, by invitation only, leading practitioners are invited to attend to discuss issues of the day in a structured setting and also become Honorary Overseas Members of Combar. We are hoping in due course to organise a Roundtable Conference in London.
We have been extremely fortunate to have had the support and active participation of leading lights of the judiciary and former judiciary at each of our meetings.
2019 – The Hon’ble Justice Rohinton Nariman and Lord Hoffmann
2018 – The Hon’ble Justice Srikrishna and Dame Elizabeth Gloster CBE
2017 – The Hon’ble Dr Justice Chandrachud and Sir Bernard Rix
Our events are well-attended and well-regarded and have attracted a loyal following from both jurisdictions. Leading practitioners from top Indian law firms as well as the Indian Bar regularly participate.
