Ask The Expert - Update on German Law & The Use of ADR Procedures in Europe - Slides

Views: 893 Published: 09 Jul 2008 Average Rating: unrated Print

Please see the accompanying recording - In the first half of this call, we will undertake an overview of German legal principles and how they vary from major international models. We will discuss key areas of concern for negotiators, including liabilities, indemnities and liquidated damages and the attitudes of German courts to the interpretation of such clauses.
In the second half, the discussion will move to the use of arbitration and mediation. This approach to dispute resolution is only recently gaining in popularity in central Europe, so we will discuss the maturity of this method and the implications of different options for choice of governing law and jurisdiction. Dr. Sick will also share a 'model clause' that he has developed.
Attached are the slides that Dr. Sick will refer to.
