(This Webinar is organised by Hong Kong Mediation Council Limited ("HKMC")- a wholly owned subsidiary of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre)
HKMC x International Mediators webinar series
To commemorate its establishment, HKMC has lined up a series of webinars by international mediators through 2023, bringing in experts from around the world to discuss the power of mediation in a wide spectrum -- early use, creative applications, and various mediation techniques in construction, finance, personal injury, family disputes, and employment etc.
First Webinar: Complex Construction Mediation in the U.S. and How it Differs from Hong Kong
Achieving settlement of complex construction disputes through mediation requires a mediator with expertise, skill, and experience in the mediation process, as well as in the construction industry. Such expertise, skill, and experience allows the mediator, in confidential discussions with individual parties, to develop bases for settlement by assisting the parties' as requested in their respective evaluations of critical factual and legal issues, and not just serving as a practitioner of mere "shuttle diplomacy".
Bruce Edwards is an expert in construction mediation in the U.S. and will compare and contrast against construction mediation in Hong Kong with Christopher To in this presentation.
The Webinar will be run in English via Zoom.
