It gives me great pleasure to announce that the publishers of this blog and Kluwer Arbitration are hosting their first Webinar designed for corporate counsel on Wednesday 9th November (4pm Central European time/3pm UK time/10am Eastern Standard Time).
The webinar is entitled Shell vs GE: The Employer-Contractor Debate. The Best Way to Resolve Conflicts and the speakers are Ute Joas-Quinn, Associate General Counsel of Shell and Mike McIlwrath, Associate General Counsel – litigation of GE Oil & Gas.

Sometimes disputes arise between friendly companies and Ute and Mike will address what would happen in a hypothetical dispute between their companies and also bring their experience to bear in a discussion on how best to resolve conflicts generally.

The webinar has been specifically designed to provide information, hints and tips to help corporate counsel working on dispute resolution matters. It also aims to give you first-hand insight into what the opposing party may be thinking across the negotiating table.

Through scenarios as seen from two different perspectives as counsel for employer and contractor, the webinar will cover an array of important issues including:

– Preserving the relationship while resolving the dispute: mediation and negotiation alternatives

– Contractual disputes – “If it’s not in the contract….”

– Dealing with multiple (unrelated) contractors/parties

– Disputes surrounding non-technical risk aspects (e.g., HSE, sustainable development, communities, human rights and other corporate social responsibility aspects) involving contractors

– Dealing with the media
