Online WIPO Mediation and Arbitration Workshop
November 9-11, 2021, from 10:00 to 12:00 CET
International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI)
Licensing Executives Society International (LESI)
The Workshop aims to promote the understanding of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) options for the resolution of intellectual property (IP) and technology disputes. The Workshop is designed for mediators, arbitration and IP lawyers, in-house counsel, patent and trademark attorneys, and business professionals wishing to familiarize themselves with international mediation and arbitration procedures and to receive training as neutrals or party representatives.
The Workshop will cover mediation and arbitration procedures, with particular reference to the practical case application of the recently updated WIPO Mediation, Arbitration and Expedited Arbitration Rules, an industry view on dispute resolution, keys to the effective drafting of dispute resolution clauses, and a look at the move to online meetings and hearings. The presentation faculty includes WIPO mediators and arbitrators, in-house counsel, and WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center professionals, all experienced in the conduct of international ADR procedures. Ample Q&A opportunities will enable attendees to interact with the program faculty.
