Diego Faleck (LL.M. ’06) is the Chief of Staff of the Secretariat of Economic Law of the Ministry of Justice in Brazil, President of the Federal Fund for Collective Rights and Professor of Negotiation and Mediation at the FGV/SP Law School. Mr. Faleck has been developing substantial ADR projects in Brazil, such as the design of dispute resolution systems to the TAM (2007) and Air France (2009) plane accidents and the drafting of an ADR section for the Brazilian Class Actions Bill.
The presentation will address the creation and work of the two first ever claims resolution facilities in Brazil, that took place after the crash of TAM Airlines Flight 3054 on July, 17, 2007 and of Air France Flight 447 on May, 31, 2009. The experience was based on the theoretical framework on negotiation and DSD acquired at Harvard Law School, which was used to advance the interests of the families of those who lost their lives and to avoid the enormous costs that would have been borne by the parties in resolving their claims.
