June 2018 – CBI Was Asked To Write About How Mediation Is Being Used In Cross-Border Cases

Our article, “The Emergence of Mediation in Cross-Border Cases”, was jointly written byHon. Leif Clark (ret.)Jack Esher and Daniel Glosband, and published in the INSOL Journal (Second Quarter 2018).

We have previously provided articles dealing more generally with mediation in insolvency cases.  See, e.g., Jack Esher’s recent survey for GRR, Insolvency Mediation Around the Globe (view Jack’s GRR article by clicking on this link); and his prior article for International Corporate Rescue (ICR), Recent Use of Mediation for Resolution and Effective Management of Large Case Insolvencies, International Corporate Rescue, Volume 12, Issue 6 at 349 (Chase Cambria Company (Publishing) Ltd, 12/2015) (downloads available by request to Jack: esher@cbinsolvency.com

Our article in the current INSOL Quarterly Journal digs a little deeper to discuss using mediation in specific cases, and we discuss two reported cross-border cases, one in which mediation was not used and one in which it was.  Using these real-case examples, we explain strategy concerns and most effective practices for using mediation in cases.  We hope you find it informative and useful.
And now, for something completely different, here is one of Jack’s articles on Insolvency Mediation that was published in Russia.  Many thanks to Prof. Tsisana Shamlikashvili, President of the Center for Mediation in Law and the National Organization of Mediators in Moscow, for this translation!
