ASA & SCCM Webinar

4 March 2021 (16:30h) - Does mediation work with regard to commercial disputes?

The Swiss Arbitration Association (ASA) and the Swiss Chamber of Commercial Mediation(SCCM) are jointly organizing this interactive Webinar to provide practical tips for in-house counsel, lawyers, arbitrators and mediators active in the fields of international commercial dispute resolution and drafting of international contracts.

Multi-tier dispute resolution clauses are becoming increasingly common in international business contracts. However, many litigation and arbitration practitioners remain skeptical whether mediation is an adequate dispute resolution mechanism in commercial settings. Common thinking is: The disputants in commercial conflicts are less emotional than in family law disputes, thus, they can directly negotiate with each other and a mediator at the table is no added value and, hence, not necessary. Also, the disputants can often go separate ways after the dispute has been resolved, so, no need to maintain already broken relationships. Is that so?

Julia Jung and Urs Weber-Stecher will be discussing this topic with their two guest speakers.
