Business dealings don’t always work out as planned. From time to time suppliers fall out with their customers, contractors fail to deliver what they have promised, and partners disagree on strategy: disputes break out and the litigation lawyers sharpen their quills. Fortunately not all commercial disputes end up in the law courts. Contracting parties have learned to plan ahead in the event that differences may occur. Clauses are written into contracts to provide and even require alternative means of resolving disagreements. This five day programme will look at some of the most popular methods of alternative dispute resolution. We will look at the underlying principles of facilitated negotiation which are adopted by an independent third-party, such as a mediator. We will examine the role of private courts using independent arbitrators to determine who is at fault and who should be compensated. We will consider how arbitration awards can be enforced through the national courts in foreign jurisdictions and why arbitration is so popular as a means of settling a dispute. Delegates will have the chance to practice tools and techniques to assist them when preparing for and managing commercial disputes.
