Government of India’s liberalization of economy has promoted privatization, globalization and foreign investment and this has also given rise to commercial disputes involving high stakes. This fortified the need to establish a speedy, cost effective and efficient dispute resolution mechanism. Further, it is also important and necessary to check and counter the practice of some foreign Commercial Courts assuming jurisdiction in commercial disputes even where no cause of action arose in those countries. The foreign courts cited the dilatory process in India where the Indian courts sometimes take years in deciding the cases.
“The Commercial Division of High Court Bill, 2009” is one such bill which has drawn attention of the industry and trade in a big way.
Hon’ble Mr. Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri, Judge, Supreme Court of India has agreed to inaugurate the Conference and address the delegates.
Some of the key speakers are as follow:

1)      Hon’ble Mr. Justice Mukul Mudgal, former Chief Justice, Punjab & Haryaba High Court


2)      Shri Fali Sam Nariman, Sr. Advocate, Supreme Court of India & president Emeritus, The Bar Association of India   


3)      Shri. Lalit Bhasin , Managing Partner, Bhasin & Co. , Chairman, Film Certification Appellate Tribunal, Vice President, The Bar Association of India


4)      Shri Anil K Aggarwal, former  President, ASSOCHAM


5)      Shri R K Handoo, Sr Advocate and Chairman, ASSOCHAM’s National Council on Legal Affairs


6)      Shri Amit Rai, Global General Consel, M/s RANBAXY


7)      Shri Tabrez Ahmad, Secretary General, OPPI

8)   Shri S Ravishankar, Advocate on Record, Supreme Court of India, Partner, Law Senate

The Bill is undoubtedly a step forward to enable fast and efficient delivery of justice in India. The Bill seeks to bring-in uniformity across the country with regard to commercial disputes of a specified value to be dealt with by The Commercial Divisions of High Courts. This will help reduce the burden on the District Courts and facilitate the speedy disposal of cases in India.

In this backdrop, ASSOCHAM has planned a one day Conference as above.
We wish to have a presence of just 80 delegates for a meaningful interactive dialogue with the high profile Speakers. As such, nominations for the conference may please be sent to us on TOP PRIORITY for our confirmation.
