Now available online! Encounter 4: IP Arbitration In A Digitally Enhanced World

If you missed the 4th Global Digital Encounter: IP Arbitration In A Digitally Enhanced World., which took place yesterday, July 22nd at 4pm Madrid Time, you may now watch it online!

The 4th encounter reviewed the topic of IP Arbitration In A Digitally Enhanced World.
The post-COVID Crisis environment is marked by a major breakout of IP legal disputes on contracts that were / are deeply affected in all parts of the world, with a considerable amount of contract breeches. This means a rapid surge in litigation, and fast-increasing interest for Advance Disputes Resolution, both arbitration and mediation. At the same time, this complex new environment brings new challenges and opportunities to arbitration and mediation, in particular on online operations, distance-based operations, small business access to arbitration and mediation, enforceability of arbitration, information and transparency on arbitrators' choice. Speakers will provide a broad picture of the increased, but also, changing role of IP Arbitration and Mediation in a profoundly transformed post-crisis business environment.

To do so, we had the pleasure of counting on three world renowned experts in the matter.

The panel was composed of Prof. Catherine A. ROGERS, Professor at Penn State Law, and Chung Nian LAM, Partner at Wong Partnership LLP.

The task of moderating this encounter was carried out by Ignacio DE CASTRO, director of the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center.

We'll be back in September!
