Munich – EUCON, a leading conflict management organisation for the business world, has appointed Claus Thiery to its central Board of Directors. The equity partner and head of the Dispute Resolution section at CMS Hasche Sigle's Munich office was successful in the 2011 elections to the Board of Directors, where he will now be responsible for strategy and mediation management.
With his background as a judge, Claus Thiery has extensive expert experience of in-court and out-of-court dispute resolution procedures, including arbitration. He has gained wide-ranging experience as a business mediator, particularly on behalf of clients in complex high-volume disputes involving commercial law.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) has come to the attention of a wider public in particular through conciliation procedures in the context of major infrastructure projects. Large companies and governments need to resolve disputes efficiently, and EUCON and CMS have adopted a leadership role in driving these developments.
"During my period in office, my objective is to consolidate EUCON's position as a market-leading organisation for ADR," says Claus Thiery. Thiery also intends to boost EUCON's links with leading German and international law firms and the business world, and to promote best practice principles in mediation management.
EUCON (European Institute for Conflict Management) advises and supports conflict parties in solving both in-house business conflicts and disputes with outside parties. EUCON assists conflict adversaries in their choice of the best mediators or ADR specialists and ensures professional conduct of the conflict resolution proceedings it supervises.
