Y-ADR in Geneva 2013

How are corporations addressing the high cost of dispute resolution?

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Geneva, Switzerland, at Winston & Strawn LLP

Description: Once a dispute has arisen parties must face not only the risk of losing the battle and being ordered to pay the other side, but also the non-insignificant financial cost of legal proceedings. While every commercial dispute is unique and corporations each have different budgetary constraints, there are many ways of limiting or reducing the bill. In this interactive seminar with young practitioners and in-house counsel, a panel of experienced counsel shared their experience and views on how dispute resolution can be more cost-effective – and yet still successful.

Welcome Remarks:

• Olivier André, Special Counsel & Director of Dispute Resolution Services, CPR

Moderator: • Vanessa Alarcon Duvanel, Winston & Strawn LLP

Speakers included:

• Kevin Banasik, Assistant General Counsel, Philip Morris International

• Marc Lahusen, General Counsel, Georg Fischer AG

• Stefano Catelani, Corporate Counsel, DuPont & CPR’s European Executive Board Member

Time: 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. CEST. Followed by reception
