- Judicial Review of Arbitration Awards: Takeaways From Deflategate
Thursday, October 13, 2016 | 11:10 AM - 12:00 PM EST
The much talked about “Deflategate” controversy involving Tom Brady and his collective bargaining agreement with the National Football League put the arbitration process under the microscope and raised interesting questions about the review of arbitration awards by the judiciary.
In this lively panel discussion, retired federal judge and current JAMS arbitrator/mediator Hon. Charles B. Swartwood III will share his insights as a former jurist and current arbitrator regarding these issues, and seasoned reinsurance counsel will discuss the reviewability of reinsurance arbitration awards and legal trends in that context. Tom Brady may be missing four games, but do not sit out this fun panel discussion!

- Interactive Workshop
Thursday, October 13, 2016 | 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM EST
Changing climate, a global economy, conflicting dispute resolution provisions and creative vehicles for shifting risk. Where does this leave the parties to a reinsurance contract or any risk-shifting agreement in the event of a dispute over a loss payment? The interactive workshop will weave together some of the concepts covered by the day’s speakers to create and explore hypothetical problems that audience members could find themselves facing in the near future.
