Webinar ‘Dispute resolution strategy during Corona: when corporate mediation makes sense’ Thursday 30 July 2020, 17.00-18.15 hrs., online

The impact of COVID-19 around the globe has caused market volatility, business conflicts and corporate disputes. How are courts, arbitrators and parties dealing with complex business disputes during this pandemic? The courts are catching up after weeks of closure and arbitrations are adjusting to online hearings, all resulting in delays. In order to contain, manage and resolve a corporate conflict there is an emerging need for alternative dispute resolution, more so now than ever before.

Now is the time to break away from convention and seek creative solutions to resolve a dispute. Since mediation is flexible, the online mediation procedure to be used can be adapted to the needs of the parties. Furthermore, in mediation the parties can resolve their disputes in ways that would never be possible in a court of law or in arbitration. This webinar will explore the benefits of online corporate mediation during the pandemic and will address what to expect and how to be successful.

The following topics will be addressed:

    • COVID-19 and the need for pragmatic approaches to dispute resolution
    • Which corporate matters lend themselves to an online approach?
    • When does online corporate mediation make sense, how and when can it help to settle a dispute
    • How to adjust your dispute resolution approach or style in order to be effective online?
    • Choosing a forum for your international corporate disputes
    • Settling in the shadow of the law – corporate mediation during a pending court case or while in arbitration, what are reasonable expectations, drawbacks and benefits?
