About AIA in the United States
AIA opened an office in New York in the summer of 2010 to better reach audiences outside of the European community and foster healthy transatlantic dialogue about ADR. The New York office is run by Eugene Becker, who is passionate about the promotion of ADR and fostering a transatlantic dialogue in the field.
About Eugene Becker: Eugene S. Becker is the senior principal of Becker Law in New York City. He is admitted to practice before various courts in Australia and South Africa, and is licensed in New York under the Judiciary Law as a foreign lawyer. Mr. Becker has been in legal professional practice since 1981 and has, throughout much of that time, been involved in multinational litigation and arbitration projects in the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. He develops recovery models and assists in their execution in a multijurisdictional context. Mr. Becker has written and delivered many papers on multinational litigation, with particular emphasis on developing admissible discovery and recovery within a fraud context.
In addition, AIA encourages and promotes scholarship and publication in the field of ADR. For example, we invite our members and, in particular, young practitioners to submit their works for publication in our monthly newsletter ‘In Touch’. The newsletter provides more than 40,000 practitioners and academics worldwide with the latest updates on developments in the field of ADR. In addition, represents compilation of papers presented at the AIA’s conferences organised at least twice a year and serves to enhance the knowledge and understanding of ADR.
AIA collaborates with the ADR institutions throughout the world. For example, we are actively involved in mediation through the European Network of Mediation Centres. The Network aims at the sharing of information and good practices in order to promote the use of mediation, to increase the quality of mediation and mediators and to enhance general public awareness to choose ADR as a method to resolve disputes on both domestic and international level.
