The Institute of European Mediation and Arbitration (Institute für Europäische Mediation und Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit / IEMS e.V.) specialises in various forms of out-of-court settlements, so called alternative or appropriate dispute resolution (ADR).
The Institute offers individual and strategy consultations regarding ADR, costs-and-benefit-analysis of court proceedings in comparison to ADR, contract drafting with consideration of ADR as well as post-negotiation assistance in order to avoid dispute escalation. Furthermore, the Institute offers mediation proceedings concerning almost any sphere of life and legal issue, also in international / cross-border cases and cases involving inter-cultural issues, and arbitration in suitable legal spheres.
These options are being provided by experienced and specialised mediators and lawyer’s, carefully selected by the Institute.
In addition, the Institute organises (in-house) seminars and offers individual coaching as well as further training in ADR.
Academic research, monitoring and support are at the core of the Institute’s work.
