Virtually every international IP dispute is difficult. Sometimes, extraordinarily so. Mediation in international IP disputes works best when each person concerned is thoroughly prepared, and brings to the table all his or her interpersonal skills, cultural sensitivity, patience, open-mindedness, creativity and commitment.
In We Must Talk, Because We Can, David Plant focuses on the process of mediation and on the mediator, the client and the counsel. Mediation, from Mr. Plant’s point of view, is interest-based negotiation facilitated by a third person – the mediator. His aim is to help you – whatever your role – to prepare for and engage in such mediation at the most productive level.
