How to Make Arbitration Clauses Work for You
Arbitration can be an efficient and effective means of resolving disputes. Unfortunately, there are several reasons why this isn’t always the case, starting with a failure to include key details when crafting an arbitration clause. This program will discuss several considerations for in-house attorneys, including guidance on how a well-tailored clause can give parties more control over the process and make arbitration more economical, final and appropriate for your specific purpose. Special attention will also be paid to what types of disputes are—and are not—best suited to arbitration.
