International Trademark Association to Hold Roundtable on Intellectual Property Mediation in Israel

Published: August 21, 2019

New York, New York—August 21, 2019—
The International Trademark Association (INTA) is hosting its first-ever roundtable in Israel, which will focus on the use of mediation for dispute resolution on intellectual property (IP) matters. 

The roundtable, Then and Now: Evolution of IP Mediation in Israel and What the Future Holds, will be held on September 24, at the law offices of Meitar Liquornik Geva Leshem Tal in Ramat Gan. It is hosted by Yoav Oestreicher, a partner at the firm.  

Panelists in various stages of their careers will share their experiences related to the evolution of IP mediation in Israel. They will also discuss how the institution or absence of rules and regulations has affected the popularity of IP mediation in Israel; the pros and cons of using this method, specifically in the context of Israeli culture and litigation norms; and current trends in Israel, the United Kingdom, and the United States for this area of alternative dispute resolution. 

The roundtable comes on the heels of INTA’s first official delegation to Israel in early July. During that visit, Association leaders and representatives met with INTA members, IP judges, government officials, and others to raise awareness and understanding of IP issues among all stakeholders and to discuss potential areas of cooperation. 

“It’s important to continue to amplify our relationship with stakeholders in Israel, a country that is making valuable contributions to the worldwide intellectual property environment,” said INTA CEO Etienne Sanz de Acedo. 

INTA’s Israel roundtable will be held in English. It is open to Association members and non-members. To register, visit
