An Efficient Mediation process

30.09.2014

Stibbe has the pleasure of welcoming Mr Paul M. Lurie on Tuesday, 30 September as a guest speaker on the effective use of mediation for resolving commercial disputes as early as possible and avoiding unnecessary expense.

Mr Lurie is a US mediator with over 40 years of experience. He is the author of The Principles of the Guided Choice Dispute Resolution Process, which describes a flexible process that aims to resolve disputes as early as possible in order to reduce legal and expert costs and preserve a positive working relationship among the parties. He has a broad knowledge of the real estate, design, and construction industries and has many years of experience as an arbitrator and mediator of construction-related matters and disputes arising from long-term supply and cooperation contracts.

Mr Lurie will share his experience and express his views on when to have recourse to mediation and how to conduct a mediation process efficiently. His presentation will take the form of an interactive discussion with a selected group of invitees. This will be a unique opportunity for participants to apply overseas mediation experience and insights to contractual relationships and situations under Belgian law.

This seminar will be on Tuesday, 30 September 2014, from 12:00–14:00

Articles - Civiele procedures worden waarschijnlijk niet sneller en eenvoudiger met het Conceptwetsvoorstel modernisering en vereenvoudiging bewijsrecht en de Tijdelijke Experimentenwet rechtspleging.
