Throughout her career, Michèle Weil-Guthmann has worked in conflict resolution: as a judge, a diplomat, a negotiator for France and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and finally a mediator and arbitrator.

A honorary magistrate today, she was, until 1998, a judge, then as Vice-President of the Paris TGI Court.

Then a diplomat in charge of international negotiations, legal advisor to the Permanent Representation of France with the United Nations in Geneva, she represented France in multilateral negotiations, in particular at the United Nation Compensation Commission (UNCC) set up by the Security Council, and in the area of intellectual property.

She later served as Director of the Office of the Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). In this context, she participated in most of the strategic discussions concerning intellectual property and the Organization as a whole.

At the crossroads and in the continuity of her previous professional experiences, Michèle, also a certified company director (ASC), has chosen to develop amicable conflict resolution through mediation and good governance.

She is now mainly a mediator, arbitrator and trainer. She practices mediation in France and Switzerland (Geneva and Vaud) before courts and courts of appeal as well as national and international mediation and arbitration centres where she is listed, accredited or sworn.

A mediator experienced in various fields (intellectual property, commercial, social, family, inheritance and sharing, international…), she also practices in-house mediation at international institutions.

Active in the promotion of mediation for a tailor-made, human and responsible justice, both in the interest of companies and individuals, she is Vice-President of the European Group of Judges for Mediation (GEMME-France).

Finally, she is a trainer, among others at the Institut de Formation à la Négociation et la Médiation (IFOMENE), the Ecole nationale des magistrats (ENM) and various universities, schools for lawyers or training centres, and a judge in international mediation competitions.

She works in French and English.
