Faculty and Summary
Large complex commercial disputes often involve multiple parties and contracts, intensive and complicated factual scenarios, and high financial stakes (usually in excess of seven figures). When resolved in traditional domestic trial courts, the resolution of these disputes can be lengthy, unsatisfying, expensive, and very public. Fortunately, parties to large complex commercial disputes have many alternative resolution options that may permit them to privately and efficiently resolve even the most complex dispute in a cost effective manner. This webinar will provide you with the skills, techniques and information essential to more effectively advocate and advance your clients' business goals when handling complex disputes and provide you with an overview of foundational issues.
This recorded webinar consists of two modules, one focusing on mediation and the other focusing on arbitration, and includes discussion of the following questions:
ADR can be and often is the chosen process for the resolution of complex disputes involving corporate parties. Mediation and arbitration are now well-known and often utilized processes offering numerous benefits. Mediation provides a private setting to work on a party-driven, non-dictated, mutually agreed business resolution facilitated by a skillful neutral. Arbitration can provide a cost-effective, fair, and efficient process in an informal, private setting tailored by the parties to meet their needs and schedules instead of a proceeding in the mandatory, formal and public realm of the civil court system.
