MIPTC's Book Review: Patent Mediation and Commercial Mediation In Europe

The International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution sent two books to MIPTC to review:  Patent Mediation and Commercial Mediation in Europe.  Both are relatively short, easy reads for counsel, judges and businesses dealing with alternative dispute resolution, and a good guide for all. 

Mediation in Europe is a bit of an oxymoron; it's not used in Europe as extensively as it is in the U.S.  The Institute's book explains in clear language why businesses in the EU should adopt the model, how it works and the benefit for solving business disputes. 

The Patent Mediation book, on the other hand, applies both in the EU and US, and offers a quick but comprehensive guide to resolving patent disputes in a five-step process. 

If you're involved in any type of dispute and looking for a "how-to" keep your costs down and focus on business instead of litigation, here are a pair of must-reads.
