AIDA DISPUTE RESOLUTION WORKING PARTY - Meeting 1 - Singapore October 18th 2017

The inaugural meeting of the newly established AIDA Dispute Resolution Working Party was held on October 18th as a prelude to the Asia Pacific Insurance Conference at the Stamford Raffles October 18 - 20 2017.

I have the honour to Chair AIDA's latest Working Party and in this function I am ably supported by Vice Chair , Ana Rita Petraroli Barretto from Brazil

It would be fair to describe our first meeting as a resounding success . It was unfortunate that Ana Rita couldn't make it, but we had an outstanding list of presenters from 6 different jurisdictions , each speaking on the topic Dispute Resolution for insurance disputes, in its different but related forms .

Mark Kelly, a Barrister from New Zealand opened the discussion with a presentation on Mediation Schemes for Natural Disaster Insurance Disputes .

Craig Marvinney a lawyer from the USA (and a fellow FDCC member) gave a US overview on ADR in the USA .

Assoc Prof Daleen Millard from the University of Johannesburg introduced us to the dispute resolution schemes that currently operate in South Africa.

The fourth speaker was Mr Kevin Kwek a lawyer from Singapore who gave a brief outline of the insurance litigation mechanisms as they apply in Singapore .

Aaron Le Marquer a litigation lawyer in Thailand addressed the topic - "Arbitration and Dispute Resolution in Thailand and Indo China" while the final speaker Mr Don O'Halloran presented an overview of the Financial Ombudsmans Scheme and its application to insurance disputes in Australia .

Despite the fact that it was our first meeting it was extremely well attended and with attendees leaving their names and contact details with us it will enable us to email the attendees advising them of future meetings of the Working Party the next of which will take place in Warsaw in May and at the AIDA World Congress in Rio (Brazil) in October

The 5 of 6 speakers have either papers or power point presentations all of which you will find below.

For future communications I would invite anyone interested in the activities of the AIDA Dispute Resolution Working Party or wishing to contribute material, to get in touch with either, Vice Chair, Prof Ana Rita Petraroli or myself

Please also let us know if you would like to be added to our email list so that you can be made aware of our future activities.
