DIOT-SIACI is convinced of the importance of mediation, due to the speed, confidentiality and efficiency of this process, and has made a strong commitment to alternative dispute resolution by entering into an agreement with Equanim International to promote amicable settlements.
The leader in insurance consulting and brokerage wishes to offer its corporate clients the best solutions for the swift and efficient prevention and management of their prelitigation and litigation situations with an insurance component.
EQUANIM INTERNATIONAL provides customized mediation services to companies, allowing the discussion framework to be adapted to the specificities of the pre-litigation and litigation situations being faced. This new, proactive and constructive approach to mediation offers the possibility of bringing global and negotiated solutions to complex problems.
To this end, DIOT-SIACI and EQUANIM INTERNATIONAL have decided to combine their expertise in order to:
- study and analyze the specific needs and expectations around mediation that could be made available to DIOT-SIACI's clients, and to insurers;
- in compliance with any confidentiality obligations to which the Parties may be subject, identify practical cases of situations which may be solved amicably thanks to the intervention of Equanim International and with the assistance of DIOT-SIACI;
- design a mediation offering adapted to DIOT-SIACI's business, and that of its clients and their insurers;
- ensure better guidance, awareness-raising and communication among players in support of mediation.
Cédric Charpentier, Global CEO of DIOT-SIACI, is delighted: "The conclusion of this agreement designed to promote the use of amicable settlement of pre-litigation and litigation situations faced by our Group's client companies is an effective tool to support our clients."
