Can IP disputes be resolved easily, quickly and cost efficiently through mediation? Or does mediation act as a brake pad on ”real” proceedings? In this seminar, the SCC and WIPO will present their respective mediation (and similar) proceedings, followed by speakers who will share their experiences as mediator and as
counsel in mediation proceedings. You will learn how mediation works, how frequently it is used and get advice on best practices. We will also discuss what types of disputes and parties are best suited for mediation – and why mediation is more common in some jurisdictions than others. The seminar is aimed at legal counsels and at patent consultants who may consider advising
their clients mediation as a first step.
