About the Speaker
Mr. Jonathan Lux of the Stone Chambers
After retiring from Messrs. Ince & Co. as a partner and having practising shipping law, insurance law and handling many arbitrations and mediations, Mr. Lux became a Barrister and joined the Stone Chambers in 2011. He is an active arbitrator and mediator in England and Wales, and, is also on the panel of arbitrators of the HK International Arbitration Centre. He has lectured widely and written numerous articles on the subject of mediation, and is co-author of ADR (Alternate Dispute Resolution) and Commercial Disputes. He had been invited to speak in international conferences in various places including China.
About the Talk
The theme of the presentation is on that mediation is being strongly endorsed by the Courts but is insufficiently endorsed by arbitrators. Mr. Lux therefore will look at whether Arbitrators have the power to stay arbitration proceedings to allow mediation to occur and whether, indeed, they may have a duty to do so where the interests of justice so require – e.g. where the costs of arbitration risk becoming disproportionate to the amounts in issue.
Registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please send the reply slip before or by 13th May 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax: 2581 0004 for enrollment.
