Webinar recording | Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) in the business world
with Laura Keily
pre-recorded | Online
Whilst interest in ODR has grown significantly over the past decade, the growth of its development and use by industry has not been as swift as some may have predicted. That has changed in the last year or so, and has now radically transformed, given the social distancing measures introduced to confront the outbreak of coronavirus.
Lawyers, business people, local and international Governments, as well as the court systems, are all advocating for and adapting to new processes on an unprecedented scale in order to meet this challenge.
How can we take advantage of new technologies and better connectivity? How can ODR help the business and legal worlds address the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 crisis, in a sophisticated, yet user-friendly way, that responds to clients and dispute resolution practitioner’s needs?

About the speaker
Laura Keily is the Founder and Managing Director of Immediation. Since 2013, Laura has practised at the Victorian Bar as a specialist barrister in corporations and financial services law as well as complex commercial litigation. Laura recently completed her FCIArb qualification as an international arbitrator and prior to joining the Bar gained over a decade of experience as a blue-chip corporate advisor in Melbourne (Blake Dawson Waldron, Corrs Chambers Westgarth) and London (Slaughter and May) and in-house counsel.
Laura founded Immediation which is an online legal technology platform that enables more efficient, easier and faster access to dispute resolution for lawyers and clients. The legal industry is ripe for innovation and online dispute resolution is on the rise globally. Immediation’s world-first Panel of former judicial officers, career mediators, arbitrators and top-tier subject matter experts offers qualified, impartial dispute resolution professionals to work with both parties to resolve cases quickly and efficiently without incurring unnecessary legal costs.
Immediation has experienced exponential growth and demand for its custom-built dispute resolution technology due to the COVID-19 crisis. Apart from enabling private dispute resolution on its Platform, Immediation has facilitated Courts and Tribunals to move online for hearings, compulsory conferences and mediation. In particular the Commonwealth Courts of Australia are using the Immediation platform for online mediation.
Responding to market demand for access to its technology by the dispute resolution profession, Immediation recently released Immediation DEALMAKER, a stand-alone specialised video-conferencing application for mediators, arbitrators and lawyers to organise and conduct mediation, arbitration and other client-facing work online.
