What will we focus on in the coming period?

UNUM Arbitration & Mediation makes itself heard again. We would like to show you the possibilities of settling disputes through UNUM by means of arbitration or mediation. And, of course, we will be highlighting developments in the field of dispute resolution, both in the Netherlands and internationally.

What will we focus on in the coming period?

First and foremost, we are going to use the opportunity to visit people again at their companies and talk about their wishes to use arbitration procedures or mediation to solve any issue, and how UNUM can play a role in this.

We are looking at ways in which the UNUM Arbitration Rules can be improved. In that respect we will pay attention to various possible alterations. Parties and their counsel and arbitrators have made suggestions on basis of their experience when using the UNUM Arbitration Rules, which we shall consider carefully.

We are participating in the symposium organised by the law faculties of the universities of Groningen, Maastricht, Leiden and Rotterdam in cooperation with the Dutch Arbitration Association (DAA) to mark the fifth anniversary of the current Dutch arbitration law. This symposium was to be organised in 2020, 5 years after the new Dutch Arbitration Act came into force, but had to be postponed due to the pandemic. With two years more experience with this law, the discussions will be even more interesting. UNUM Chairman Marcel Verhagen will participate in the panel discussion “Annulment and Remission”.

This symposium will be held on 17 March 2022 from 1330-1730 hrs.
For more information please contact the aforementioned universities, the DAA or UNUM ( T +31 70 2051295 / E secretary@unum.world ).

On Thursday 21 April 2022, also in The Hague, UNUM, in cooperation with the DAA Maritime & Transport Committee, will organise a seminar with the topic “New insights on arbitration after the EVER GIVEN”. This event also promises to be very interesting in terms of content, with two renowned keynote speakers and a room full of critical listeners and questioners.
