60 Minutes

Arbitration has proven that it can be a quick, efficient, fair and cost-effective dispute resolution process. To help reach the full potential that arbitration has to offer,  there are critical steps that you can take to increase the likelihood of success in managing or chairing an arbitration and, by extension, ensure a process that provides at minimum a reasonable level of confidence and satisfaction for the parties and advocates.

This 60-minute recorded webinar focuses on the things an arbitrator needs to know to cultivate the parties’ buy-in to the arbitration process. Areas covered include-- 

  • administered vs. ad hoc arbitration;
  • optimal use of the arbitrator selection process;
  • the importance of an accurate and truthful arbitrator resume;
  • the role of confidentiality/party privacy in arbitration, including issues such as data breach and how to ramp up data security;
  • the value of an efficiently run process, including such matters as scope of claims, discovery, document exchange, when and how to use a Scott Schedule, witnesses, etc.;
         and more.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PRESENTATION:  Arbitrators, advocates/lawyers, parties, academics, and anyone interested in the dynamics of the arbitration process.
