Mediation & Dispute Resolution in Company Law Disputes - A Toolkit for Litigators
In England and Wales mediation is encouraged as a form of dispute resolution in both commercial and family law disputes.
For EU Cross-border disputes, the EU Mediation Directive (2008/52/EC) aims to facilitate and promote settlement through mediation and applies to most civil and commercial cross-border disputes where one party is domiciled in the United Kingdom or other EU Member States and the other in another distinct EU Member State.
In the area of company law specifically, engaging in the mediation process to resolve disputes is often optimal considering that disputes of this kind are multi-layered, refer to various litigation procedures and concern issues relating to mutual trust and confidence, which in turn require that confidentiality and preservation of relationships during discussions and negotiations is maintained.
Led by expert speaker and mediator Dr Georgina Tsagas, this virtual classroom seminar will focus on mediation case studies and encourage role play involving external and internal company disputes, namely between the company and other companies, stakeholders and non-governmental organisations, business partners, directors, shareholders, and the company’s internal stakeholders.
