OPINION OF THE ADR SOCIETY OF THE CZECH CHAMBER ON THE OBLIGATION OF LAWYERS 'CONFIDENTIALITY

We would like to draw the attention of lawyers - registered and unregistered mediators - to the opinion of the ADR ČAK section of 23 September 2021, which responds to the growing breach of the duty of confidentiality:

1.  The activity of a registered and unregistered mediator is the so-called other activity of a lawyer in the sense of § 56 paragraph 2 of the Advocacy Act.

2. Lawyer - registered and unregistered mediator must therefore comply with the duty  confidentiality,   the legitimate interests of clients in mediation take precedence over the lawyer's own interests.

3. Compliance with the duty of confidentiality is supervised by the Chamber, lawyers - registered i  nezapsaní  mediators fall under its disciplinary authority.

FRANCHISING COURSE FOR MEDIATORS
The IP Mediation Center in Prague has currently prepared advanced specialization training in the field of franchising for lawyers-mediators and others interested in mediation, in cooperation with the Czech Franchising Association. This two-day franchising course will take place on 14-15. September 2021 in Prague. Also in the area of franchising business, it is a matter of settling highly professional disagreements and disputes that arise in relation to the operation of the franchising concept. Litigation may not produce the expected result, it may be an ambiguous interpretation of the law, there is a high cost of litigation, there is a time or economic burden on the parties, or the dispute is too complex. In the case of a franchising business, all these aspects come into consideration. These are very specific disputes that require a great deal of knowledge in this area of business and that it is desirable to resolve by agreement with the participation of a specialized mediator.
