November 28-30, 2023, from 10:00 to 12:00 CET

Supported by

International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI)

The Workshop aims to promote the understanding of WIPO 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 WIPO Mediation, Arbitration and Expedited Arbitration Rules, an industry view on dispute resolution, and guidance to the effective drafting of dispute resolution clauses. The 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.
