In a world where time and costs are paramount and exceptional circumstances, such as those resulting from COVID-19 and the Ukraine war, require swift actions, businesses recognize the benefits of mediation. Businesses need to decide how to address competing interests and how to maintain a financial and commercial relationship with other businesses when attempting to resolve a commercial dispute. By defusing conflict, encouraging dialogue and harnessing collective knowledge, businesses engaging in mediation can act swiftly, find their own solutions and avoid lengthy and expensive litigation. Mediation can therefore play a significant role in resolving commercial disputes locally, nationally and globally.This webinar will address how to untangle the complex web of competing interests in B2B mediation in commercial disputes. Furthermore, recent developments with regard to the feasibility of mediation clauses and enforceability of mediation agreements will be discussed. Insight will be provided from the user’s perspective into the expectations of the parties. How do you preserve business relationships, manage risk, maintain profitability and reconcile competing interests? Do you want to resolve the dispute or do you want to resolve the problem that created the conflict in the first place?
