FRIDAY May 17, 2019 at 8:30am


University of Lausanne, Internef Building, Room 431


Birgit Sambeth Glasner, Partner and Co-Head of Altenburger’s Dispute Resolution Team, will explain how the Singapore Mediation Convention will impact the recognition and enforceability of international controversies settled through mediation. As a mediator in complex, international and domestic commercial matters and an acknowledged specialist in questions of strategic dispute resolution, she will explain how the Singapore Convention, modeled roughly on the successful Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitration Awards (the “New York Arbitration Convention”) could make mediated settlement agreements, like arbitration awards, easier to enforce than decisions from courts of other countries.
