The conference’s aim was to provide external and in-house counsel with an overview of the most relevant current questions in commercial mediation and to provide an ideal forum for participants from different companies to exchange experiences.
Discussions were held on the combination of mediation with other dispute resolution proceedings, ad-hoc versus administered mediation, and the role of lawyers in mediation proceedings
Representing the ICC International Centre for ADR, the only non-German institution at the conference, Ms Tümpel took part in the interactive panel to debate which procedural rules are best. The panel also included representatives from different mediation institutions including the European Institute for Conflict Management in Germany, the Mediation Centre of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Munich, and the German Institute for Arbitration.
Ms Tümpel also led one of the three workshops dedicated to “Modern escalation clauses”.
