Parties entering into IP/IT, technology or commercial contracts often do not anticipate the possible emergence of disputes. Unaware of other options, they may find themselves in expensive and time- and energy-consuming court litigation. The WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center will explain how, instead, contracting parties may choose alternative dispute resolution (ADR). WIPO’s ADR procedures may be tailored to the specific needs of the transaction, industry or technology concerned, to solve/settle issues in an efficient and confidential manner that preserves the parties’ commercial interests.
- Please note that this event is restricted to French Chamber members only -
