Activities

We are continuously spending thoughts which type of events could be interesting for mediators as well as for interested non-mediators. In case there is any particular topic you would be interested in, or in case you have additional ideas, which activities of the Life Science Practice Group could be useful for you, please don`t hesitate to contact us and let us know.

Overview Presentation „B2B Mediation im Vertriebskontext – ein Muss?“
23rd September 2021, Zürich

On 23rd September 2021, Julia Jung and Dr. Stefan Ibing were invited by the lawyer-network of www.distributiontalks.ch to hold an interactive presentation about business-to-business mediation in front of inhouse counsels from various companies (e.g. Migros, Zurich, Tillotts Pharma, TONI Digital, Capri Sun, Delica, Coca-Cola, etc.). We had a very interactive discussion about „B2B Mediation im Vertriebskontext“ (B2B mediation in the context of distribution). Many thanks for the invitation and the great discussion! We were impressed that most of the participants shared our opinion that mediation should be used much more as a tool for resolving commercial disputes outside of litigation/ arbitration.
