With our new 'Meets with...' events, we are seeking to build bridges so that we can co-operate to serve judges and arbitrators in the business of dispute resolution when they intervene in arbitration proceedings.
We will have a dialogue assessing the value of external perspectives on the performance of various ADR providers - and about the role of those who act in the interests of each party in a dispute, either as a litigator or arbitrator.
This will be a discussion in the spirit of collaboration between legal institutions, seeking to deepen the trust of the clients and enable better performance of the ADR practitioners.
Con este nuevo ‘Meets with’ buscamos tender puentes tratando de aquellas áreas de complicidad que sirvan a Jueces y Árbitros en la industria de resolución de disputas mientras que intervienen en un procedimiento de arbitraje.
Tendremos un diálogo partiendo del valor de una mirada desde el exterior acerca del desempeño de las funciones de unos y otros profesionales, y sobre el papel de aquellos otros que actúan en interés de cada parte en la disputa, ya sea en un litigio o en un arbitraje.
Una discusión que sin eludir el espíritu crítico en el régimen de colaboración entre instituciones jurídicas, busca profundizar la confianza de los clientes finales y el mejor desempeño de los practicantes de ADR.
El evento se realizará únicamente en idioma español. No habrá servicio de traducción disponible.
