A Better Way? Arbitrating & mediating IP disputes around the world

21 September 2020

More and more intellectual property disputes are multi-national in nature, and many involve jurisdictions where the IP courts are inexperienced or sometimes untrusted. In consequence, many would-be litigants are increasingly turning to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods to resolve their disputes – whether through informal mediation or a full arbitration procedure.

Join members of Gowling WLG’s global IP team as they share best practices and international strategies surrounding the use of ADR in countries around the world. Harnessing their years of combined experience, the panel will touch on a number of timely topics over the course of their discussion, including:

  • Why ADR might be the right solution
  • How to draft your contracts to ensure that ADR is required
  • The practical issues involved in making the key choices about how the arbitration might run
  • ADR issues specific to IP disputes and how to resolve them
  • Jurisdiction-specific issues and obstacles around the world
