Building on its extensive track record and network of professionals, logistical resources, and venues in several EU capitals, the HCLA has expanded its two-tier approach, i.e. a mixture of mediation and arbitration, whereby parties to commercial and investment disputes may turn to the HCLA’s mediation services in The Hague, Brussels and Paris before resorting to arbitration.
Working closely with leading international jurists, the HCLA has developed and implemented a state-of-the-art set of rules of procedure for mediation. The rules are optional and place emphasis on the flexibility and autonomy of the parties and mediators. They have been developed after careful consideration of the standard provisions of many different mediation rules, including the UNCITRAL Model Law. In addition, the HCLA maintains a list of mediators consisting of senior international lawyers, arbitrators, international civil servants, business consultants and economists with at least 15 years of recognized experience in international business transactions and dispute resolution. Therefore, clients can now benefit from the HCLA network’s extensive legal expertise and an enhanced set of mediation rules.
