Seminar on Mediation : A Business Friendly Alternative for Dispute Resolution - Jun 28, 2018

Context :

In keeping with its credo of “Corporate as a Citizen”, Bombay Chamber continuously explores opportunities to work for universal causes. ‘Ease of Doing Business’ is a high priority for Govt of India and India Inc as well. We believe that issues with enforcement of contracts and awards, and huge case backlogs in Indian courts, provide wide scope for mediation in India. 


Bombay Chamber of Commerce and Industry is in the process of setting up the Centre for Mediation and Conciliation (CMC). The aim of CMC is to institutionalize and promote the use of mediation and conciliation for resolution of corporate and commercial disputes. The centre shall also work in tandem with the existing arbitration centre of Bombay Chamber of Commerce and Industry to promote the use of hybrid ADR mechanisms such as med-arb and arb-med-arb.

The objective of the programme is as follows :
1. To create awareness about the role of mediation in commercial disputes
2. To collate stakeholders' views and expectations

Who Should Attend ? 
General Counsels, Legal and Compliance Heads, Company Secretaries, Legal Professionals (including Arbitrators and Mediators)
