Deborah Tomkinson, Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (ACICA)

Tell me a little about your background (including, but not limited to: How did you get involved in dispute resolution? Why dispute resolution, and what do you consider the importance of dispute resolution?)

My background is in private practice. As a lawyer I worked in the dispute resolution teams of a number of global firms in Sydney and Dubai, with a primary focus on construction/infrastructure and energy/resources work. Companies in these industries are fairly extensive users of dispute avoidance, claims management and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, and a great deal of my experience as a lawyer was with ADR processes such as mediation and arbitration. I developed a real understanding and appreciation of the advantages that these processes can bring users in providing opportunities for resolution that are not available through the court process.

Liliana Sánchez, Centro de Conciliación y Arbitraje de Panamá (CECAP)

Tell me a little about your background (including, but not limited to: How did you get involved in dispute resolution? Why dispute resolution, and what do you consider the importance of dispute resolution?)

I got involved in dispute resolution through MIF / IDB justice improvement projects from 1998 to 2000 and then joined the staff of the Conciliation and Arbitration Center of Panama in 2000, where I am currently employed.

I saw in the resolution of disputes not only a professional opportunity as a lawyer, because it allows you to be part of the solution of the problem of justice in your country; but also the opportunity for many companies to have alternatives in line with the current business world.  Precisely in this is the importance of dispute resolution, since technology and the way in which business moves today require solutions based on specialization, experience and speed - which then translate into efficiency in the management of the solution of disputes.
