Free online webinar.
Like many people, the working life of a dispute lawyer has been turned upside down in the last few months. Long-established ways of working have been disrupted, and early indications are that many disputes have gone into hibernation as a consequence. There is a likelihood that it will be a significant period before things can begin to get back to what they were before, and a possibility that things will never be quite the same again. There is a need for clients and their lawyers to be able to move cases forward to conclusion, and opportunities for those that embrace new working methods.
In this practical webinar we will discuss topical issues including the following:
- What are the needs of clients and their lawyers to resolve cases?
- Will the pressure the court system is facing in dealing with cases and the inevitable backlog that will follow change the landscape of dispute resolution?
- Practical insights into mediating remotely: what works well and what are the challenges for parties and their advisers?
- Will we ever really need to meet in person again?
- How do you progress a case to mediation that has gone into hibernation?
There will also be an opportunity to ask experienced mediators questions and to share your thoughts.
Please join us for this topical and practical discussion of key issues for dispute lawyers.
