Forensic Advisory Services’ Director, Litigation and Dispute Services, Daniel Djanogly will moderate a Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (London Branch) seminar hosted by Reynolds Porter Chamberlain (RPC) on 7 June. Anyone interested in attending should register using the details below.
Arbitration, mediation and other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) offer parties, amongst other things, privacy, control over the proceedings, procedural flexibility and choice of dispute resolver. The promise in principle is a quicker and cheaper route to binding resolution compared to formal court based litigation proceedings. However ADR in practice must contend with the choices made by the parties in terms of, for example, how they have contractually provided for the application of ADR in their business relationships, the procedural rules to be adopted, and their attitude and behaviour before, during and after the procedure. As a result ADR too suffers complaints particularly in terms of cost, time consumption, unpredictability and uncertainty. From their unique perspectives and based on their extensive experience serving the dispute resolution needs of the insurance industry, our distinguished panel of speakers will address “What do Insurers need out of ADR?” Audience participation in the discussion will be welcome and time will be provided for this. The seminar should be of interest to: insurers, brokers, legal advisers, in-house counsel, experts and other professionals involved in arbitration and ADR generally.
