Dispute Resolution in the Securities Industry: The Way Forward
Domestic Sessions – Day 1

Resistance to mediation — are clients doing themselves a disservice by not including mediation and other avenues in their dispute resolution options? What role should legal counsel play?

The capital market is taking mediation to a whole new level, by creating not just a specialist dispute resolution centre for investors and capital market intermediaries, but also utilising mediation as an effective tool to achieve positive outcomes. For disputes involving higher claims (i.e. exceeding RM250,000), the Securities Industry Dispute Resolution Center (SIDREC) now permits lawyers to participate as legal counsel, thereby providing a new space for legal practice. How might lawyers explore growth opportunities in this area of legal practice?
