90 minutes

When it comes to dispositive motions, certainly a claim made in arbitration could be just as suitable for disposition without a full evidentiary hearing as a claim made in civil court. Such motions may be beneficial from both a time and cost standpoint. But are dispositive motions allowed at all? By what authority? Must the arbitrator entertain them? When? What are the standards for determination? What should advocates consider in deciding whether to file such a motion?  

From this 90-minute recorded webinar, advocates will learn their best chances of prevailing on dispositive motions, including when to ask permission to file and when not to. Arbitrators will learn best practices to identify when such motions should be encouraged, and when permission should not be granted.

Areas covered will include:

  • Authority for dispositive motions in arbitration – the arbitration agreement, rules
  • Standards for deciding motions – federal, state, rules-based
  • Whether an award granting a dispositive motion will be confirmed
  • Managing dispositive motions
  • When to file; When not to file

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PRESENTATION – Arbitrators, advocates, and anyone interested in the arbitration process.
