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

After receiving an e-mail written in flawed Dutch (with some English in between), Bol.com paid €750,493.09 to what it thought was a new bank account in Spain of an existing Dutch/Belgian supplier, Brabantia. The court ruled that Bol.com could not rely on the fact that the company had already paid the scammer pretending to be Brabantia and that Bol.com was therefore not discharged by payment (ECLI:NL:RBMNE:2021:1528).
