MDBC / CCIFM: Avoiding & Resolving Cross Border Disputes

February 15, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Dear MDBC members,

Whether we like it or not, disputes form a part of business life and if you and your company haven’t yet been involved in a dispute, you certainly know someone who has.  Putting your head in the sand is not a good strategy – you need to learn how to steer around disputes and when there is no way to avoid them, how to resolve the issue efficiently.

In an international context, the most common mechanism for international disputes is arbitration, not court litigation.  While it is intended to be a mechanism for businesses, many companies run into pitfalls: drafting unworkable arbitration agreements, not thinking through the financing of the process, spending too much money, and running into delays; These are just some of the problems to avoid.

The mistakes companies make in international arbitration often cost them dearly and results in huge losses, unenforceable awards, or even awards, which get set aside by courts.

So join us at this Morning Talk with SKRINE, co – organized with CCIFM, to receive tips and tricks from seasoned dispute resolution lawyers on how to avoid an escalation and discover the do’s and don’ts of international arbitration to gain the upper hand in the next difference or dispute you cannot avoid.
