Bronwyn Lincoln with panellists, Graeme Robinson & Professor Luke Nottage
2.15 in Kirraala
Bronwyn Lincoln, partner of Herbert Smith Freehills, will lead a panel discussion to discuss the developing role of mediation in the resolution of international disputes. For some time now, the international business community has recognised the merit of international arbitration as the principal dispute resolution process. Arbitration offers many benefits, including privacy and flexibility, but its greatest selling point is the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards. However, it is rare for a tribunal to suggest to the parties engaged in international arbitration that it explore a commercial settlement through mediation in parallel with the determinative process. Bronwyn will explore with panel members including Andrew Moffatt, independent mediator and principal of Construct Accord, and Helen Tung, member of the Australian and English Bars, whether there is scope for Australia’s mediators to contribute to reform in this area.
