Warsaw Arbitration&Mediation Days

WAMD is designed to showcase practical applications of ADR in business for those with limited exposure to the topic and as a platform to exchange experiences with more seasoned users of ADR. As business is increasingly international, WAMD has a unique regional dimension with outstanding international arbitrators in particular from Central and Eastern Europe attending the event. We hope you can join us for this unique event.
