wipo-logoKathleen Ryan attended The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Mediation and Arbitration Workshops in collaboration with the USA and Canada’s Society of Licensing Executives and the New York Branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.

The purpose of the WIPO workshops is to provide training for professionals looking for more efficient and cost effective means of settling disputes. In the world of Intellectual Property, employing the practices of mediation and arbitration can serve to improve the client’s experience in resolving disputes and lead to better outcomes for both parties. Experienced arbitrators can help to eliminate uncertainty and a skilled mediator can help parties reduce costs by narrowing issues, in turn reducing litigation expenses. Use of WIPO arbitration clauses in International agreements, combined with WIPO mediation or WIPO expert determination clauses, may facilitate efficiency in disputes arising out of International Agreements.
