WIPO Mediation and Arbitration Workshop
Dates: November 12-13, 2015
Location: Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
For many companies, intellectual property has become an essential business asset as well as a means of creating value. It is being exploited on an increasingly international level in various forms of collaborative arrangements, such as licenses, technology transfer agreements and R&D agreements. As a consequence, parties increasingly look for dispute resolution mechanisms that match their business requirements: private procedures which provide efficient, flexible and less costly means of settling international disputes without disrupting commercial relationships.
The purpose of the WIPO Mediation and Arbitration Workshop is to provide intensive basic training of a practical nature for party representatives in mediation and arbitration and for mediators and arbitrators. The training will focus on the mediation process and on the main principles of international commercial arbitration law and practice, with particular reference to the practical case application of the WIPO Mediation, Arbitration and Expedited Arbitration Rules (as well as the WIPO Expert Determination Rules) in intellectual property and technology disputes.
The Workshop is designed for lawyers, patent and trademark attorneys, and others wishing to familiarize themselves with the international mediation and arbitration processes and to receive training as mediators, arbitrators or party representatives.
All participants who complete the program will be awarded a certificate of participation. An effort will be made to secure CLE credit. Participants are requested to indicate their preferred CLE or CPD jurisdiction(s) when registering.
