Beyond Alternative Dispute Resolution: Managing Conflict with External Partners Before and After the Contract is Signed

from AUTM

(Content presented at the AUTM Annual Meeting)

Contract disputes among collaboration partners can create tremendous business, financial and legal risks for academic, industry and other participants. It is critical that disputes be anticipated as a normal part of any business relationship and incorporated into planning. Adequate time needs to be devoted to these subjects before and after a contract is executed. The full range of tools available to address collaboration conflict should be understood by all the players.

The discussion of this topic will encourage licensing professionals to strive to negotiate agreements emphasizing real world implementation over the long term and to work internally and externally to establish a start-to-finish, systematic approach to conflict management using appropriate internal resources or external neutral resources. This session will explore a variety of techniques that can aid collaboration participants in preventing disputes from arising or spinning out of control once they do, including a survey of past company conflicts and dispute resolution techniques and clauses, negotiation and partnering techniques, and a sophisticated understanding of the full range of dispute minimization, escalation and resolution mechanisms that can be used to bridge gaps. more
