About the Webinar

With the continuing rise in the number of cases of COVID-19 worldwide, in addition to obvious implications of the outbreak for individuals, businesses are exposed to a heightened risk of legal. In the past few months, we have seen various discussions around whether this pandemic will be treated as 'Act of God' or 'Force Majeure' event, excusing a party from performance of contracts or would it be an event that renders performance impossible or impractical, hence frustrating the contract. Parties have been attempting to find a way around this situation either by way of citing COVID-19 as a basis for renegotiation of price or other key contractual provisions and trying to mutually resolve their issues.

In this webinar, we will discuss and analyse situations where parties have been unable to mutually resolve disputes and may have to resort to a formal process of dispute resolution. While resolving disputes arising due to and during the pandemic, it is imperative to keep in mind two factors: (i) companies would want to resolve disputes in a cost effective and efficient manner and at the same time ensure business continuity; (ii) Courts around the country have resorted to virtual hearing and are hearing only ‘urgent matters’.

In these circumstances, alternate modes of resolving disputes are worth considering. Accordingly, to bring you up to speed with these alternate modes of resolving the disputes arising due to COVID-19, Mr Raj Panchmatia, Mr Peshwan Jehangir and Anindya Basarkod of Khaitan & Co. will join you for two sessions: (i) Resolving Commercial Disputes in a Post COVID-19 scenario, with focus on Pre-Institution Mediation & Arbitration; and (ii) Career Guide: preparing for an interview, with focus on post covid-19 legal scenario and practising as a lawyer specialising in Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) in India.

SESSION 1: RESOLVING COMMERCIAL DISPUTES IN A POST COVID-19 SCENARIO

In this session, we will discuss the following:
  • Available/ alternate modes of commercial dispute resolution during the pandemic
  • Concept/ legal framework of Pre-Institution Mediation

  • Role of lawyers in the process

SESSION 2 (Q&A): PREPARING FOR INTERVIEWS IN POST-COVID SCENARIO & UNDERSTANDING THE CAREER PATH AS LAWYER SPECIALISING IN ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION

In the second session, we will discuss:

  • Major topics/ concepts the law students should be aware of from interview/ recruitment perspective
  • Do’s and don’ts for law students during the current lockdown
  • Feasibility of shaping career as ADR lawyer in India, in the current scenario.
