Disputes and misunderstandings can easily arise when parties are based in different countries and speak different languages. They can be harder to solve by direct negotiation due to communication difficulties, logistics, cross-cultural issues and time differences.
This is where mediation can play a significant role in bringing parties together to resolve disputes. It provides a country neutral, commercial solution.
I can mediate in English or Italian, and have a good command of French. I am also a member of the international network of law firms, Libralex E.E.I.G.
I can offer Online Dispute Resolution using video conferencing, or telephone mediation, in addition to face-to-face mediation.
The threat of multiple proceedings in various jurisdictions or expensive overseas arbitration can be a compelling reason for parties to mediate international disputes.
