WIPO-CAM Collaboration: Mediation for International Disputes in Italy

A collaboration between the Milan Chamber of Arbitration (CAM) and the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center (WIPO Center) has been established in July 2020 for the promotion of mediation for international disputes in the areas of intellectual property (IP) and technology. Under the collaboration, the WIPO Center and CAM jointly administer mediation cases in these areas involving at least a non-Italian party under the WIPO Mediation Rules.

WIPO-CAM Panel of Mediators

The WIPO Center and CAM have developed an indicative WIPO-CAM Panel of Mediators, skilled in all areas of IP and technology. The parties may agree on the appointment of the mediator, or they may request assistance from the WIPO Center and CAM to identify other suitable mediator candidates (Italian or of other nationalities) that satisfy the parties’ requirements.

How to Submit a Dispute to WIPO-CAM Mediation?

Referral to WIPO-CAM Mediation is consensual. To facilitate parties’ agreement, the WIPO Center and CAM provide recommended contract clauses and submission agreements for existing disputes (including those pending before the courts).

Parties are free to adapt the WIPO-CAM model clauses and submission agreements in line with their needs in the dispute that is to be submitted to WIPO-CAM Mediation. The WIPO Center and CAM are available to assist parties in such exercise to offer guidance on procedural options that may foster time and cost-efficiency.
