Mediation and Arbitration can perfectly coexist
The Kluwer mediation blog published on 9 December a post written by Rafal Morek, K&L Gates LLP, about the new ICC Mediation Rules, which summarizes the spirit of the new Rules.
As Morek points out, the two main features of the ICC Mediation Rules
are “simplicity” and “flexibility" and holds that as a top provider of
high quality arbitration services worldwide, the ICC is in a privileged
position to seek to “copy” its own success in the broader field of ADR.
blog post also focuses on the fact that mediation is no enemy or competitor to
arbitration but that both services can perfectly coexist and develop together,
as Morek says, in "a truly “win-win” paradigm".
