Many businesses are frustrated by the cost of legal expenses in defending or bringing disputes. By equipping individuals with the basic skills needed to handle and resolve disputes, cost savings can be made. Moreover, awareness and use of other options available, such as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) can resolve these disputes efficiently and maintain or event improve commercial relationships.
In this panel discussion we will look at how disputes typically arise and the common contractual issues faced by businesses operating in Asia, opening up to discussion with the audience on your experiences and frustrations in this area.
The session will then provide a comparative overview of options including Arbitration, Construction Adjudication, and Mediation. Finally, we will introduce the steps to take for your business to successfully take advantage of these ADR procedures.
We would like to express our thanks to our Breakfast Club Series Partner, The Fry Group, for their support with this event.
