138th Annual Meeting of the International Trademark Association (INTA)
Presented By: International Trademark Association (INTA)
|Event||138th Annual Meeting of the International Trademark Association (INTA)
Mediation is a specialized process that is becoming increasingly common in the resolution of trademark disputes. Practitioners with limited firsthand mediation experience, however, may be at a disadvantage when attending a mediation. This session seeks to make practitioners more comfortable with the mediation process, so as to better prepare for mediation.
Attendees will observe the recreation of an actual mediation conducted by experienced outside and in-house practitioners and a seasoned mediator from the INTA Panel of Trademark Mediators who participated in the mediation when it took place. During this session, the presenters will demonstrate the important steps routinely encountered in a typical trademark mediation, from start to finish. This will permit attendees to see and understand how the mediator mediates and navigates between the parties and their counsel; how counsel works through the process with the mediator and the client; and how to approach mediating their own disputes to reach a practical solution without litigation.
Participants will include a claimant brand owner, based in the U.S., represented by in-house counsel and their external counsel, a defendant brand owner based outside of the U.S., represented by in-house counsel and their external U.S. and non-U.S. counsel, the mediator, and a narrator that will interject with observations about the mediation.
