1. Programme Synopsis:
Have you ever been involved in an IP or commercial dispute before a Court? It is indeed a lengthy and expansive procedure. However, did you know that you could easily save time and money by using the path of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)? ADR refers to a range of procedures that are used to resolve disputes as an alternative to going to trial before a Court. These procedures involve independent intermediaries (such as mediators, arbitrators or experts) to facilitate the resolution of disputes in a totally confidential and neutral way.
According to recent statistics from WIPO, SMEs overall represent 37% of the parties involved in WIPO mediations and arbitrations so sign up for this webinar and explore with us from a practical point of view how you can benefit from ADR in South-East Asia with a special highlight on Singapore and Vietnam.
We look forward to having you on 19 August 2021 at 10.00 (CEST)/ 15.00 (ICT)/ 16.00 (SGT) and seize the opportunity to discuss with our outstanding speakers further how ADR can be a very efficient solution to your IP and commercial issues.
