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.

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
