On 16 February 2016, our Singapore office is holding an interactive session with in-house counsel on how to use mediation effectively. Alastair Henderson, managing partner of South East Asia, and Emmanuel Chua, senior associate, will be joined by Eunice Chua, deputy CEO of the Singapore International Mediation Centre, to discuss:

  • the “right” time to use mediation in a dispute
  • how in-house counsel can persuade various stakeholders within the company to participate effectively in a mediation to maximise settlement prospects
  • preparing for a mediation – beyond the formalities of submissions and settlement offers
  • positioning one’s case in a mediation and beyond

The seminar will also launch the latest issue of our ADR in Asia Pacific guide series, which focuses on recent ADR developments in Singapore. For more details see the invitation. To request a copy of this guide, please email asia.publications@hsf.com
