Teleo Logistics’ Jens Behrend Holds workshop on Maritime Mediation and Negotiation
On Friday 30th of June, Teleo Logistics’ Commercial Manager Jens Behrend (Master of Mediation, Systemic Executive Coach) held a lecture and workshop on maritime mediation and negotiation at the University of Copenhagen (ELSA Law School on Maritime Law), presenting the mediation process as an alternative to litigation and arbitration in order to resolve commercial shipping and logistics disputes. Litigation and arbitration can be costly, time-consuming and confrontational, with parties afterwards frequently going their separate ways, never to do business together again. Mediation offers an alternative to traditional dispute resolution but, most importantly, puts control over the outcome into the hands of the parties involved.
Common shipping disputes which could benefit from mediation include cargo claims, charter party disputes, sale/supply disputes, shipbuilding contractual disputes, collision claims and pollution claims.
Since 2013, Teleo Logistics have been handling a wide variety of domestic and international commercial cases in the shipping industry as a mediator and co-mediator. They can gladly offer mediation and negotiation-support for the AiO Network Partners. Please do not hesitate to contact them!
