This Forum was perhaps the most successful until now as it dealt with the ever evolving issues of cross border litigation as well as with the Challenge of China and the recent evolutions on this rapidly developing country. Our partner Constantine Kokkinos was invited and was the sole Greek participant at this year's GJF and his contribution received many positive comments.
This Forum has also received a wide press coverage from the New York Times, The Wall Street journal, Newsweek, Times etc.
