Stephenson Harwood commercial litigation associates Johnny Champion, Rupali Sharma and Patrick Bettle, with support from partner Paul Phillips, have contributed to a special publication by Wolters Kluwer, titled: ‘International Arbitration and the Covid-19 Revolution’.

The publication examines the impact of Covid-19 on international dispute resolution. Aviation specialist litigators Champion, Sharma and Bettle authored a chapter on ‘Covid-19 and Aviation Disputes’, which considers how the global pandemic has affected the aviation industry, and the types of disputes that have arisen as a consequence. In the analysis, the team examines different types of disputes, including the impact on pre-existing matters, and provides commentary on possible future trends expected within the industry, as a result of the pandemic.
