On September 3, 2020, Noppramart Thammateeradaycho, counsel in Tilleke & Gibbins’ dispute resolution department, will moderate a webinar on online mediation as a tool for dispute resolution. This session is the tenth installment of the THAC International ADR Webinar Series 2020, organized by the Thailand Arbitration Center (THAC), and will feature discussion of how online technologies are being used in the resolution of conflicts and mediation of disputes.
Online mediation has been growing markedly as an alternative to in-person dispute resolution methods. While there have been questions and concerns about whether technological solutions can really substitute for the relationship-building and personal trust, mediators and disputing parties have turned to the benefits of online dispute resolution in increasing numbers. To meet the demand, there has been a proliferation of online mediation services in the market, driven by the advancement of technological capabilities—and more recently by restrictions on travel and physical meetings.
This webinar will discuss the upward trend of online mediation across the globe, consider the growth in online mediation services, and give suggestions for how this expansion can benefit parties in the mediation process. Joining Noppramart will be Abinash Barik of the Asian International Arbitration Centre in Malaysia.
The THAC International ADR Webinar Series 2020, which runs from late July through mid-September, presents various views and analyses of ADR techniques and procedures, as well as insight into the latest developments in ADR.
