90 Minutes

This 90-minute recorded webinar examines the new rules for consolidation and joinder, what constitutes appropriate use, and how arbitrators should respond to inappropriate use. In addition, common and nuanced questions about consolidation and joinder in the latest construction arbitration context are reviewed as well as provisions for industry documents. 

Areas addressed include—

  • defining consolidation and joinder;
  • how consolidation and joinder issues arise (separate agreements, “binding” arbitration provisions, common issues of law or fact, conflicting rulings, the desire for economy and efficiency);
  • problematic third-party joinder issues;
  • relevant case law;
  • industry standard form documents;
  • AAA rules and arbitrator considerations;
  • practical applications;

     and more.

This webinar will help to enhance your understanding of consolidation and joinder and provide best practices you can apply when confronted with consolidation and joinder issues during arbitration.
