Featured JAMS Speakers

Barbara A. Reeves, Esq., CEDS

International Program – “Did you ever want to tell the parties what you thought of their case, but could not do so... in Europe you can.”
Friday, November 6, 2020 | 12:30 PM – 1:45 PM ET

As arbitrators we are always conscious of the importance of maintaining our neutrality, and the appearance of neutrality. But as we learn about the case, consciously or unconsciously we develop opinions about the merits. Dr. Klaus Peter Berger will explain the new arbitral procedure rules in Germany (and elsewhere) which encourage arbitrators to take a role in the early settlement of disputes and his experiences with this approach. Commenters and attendees will be invited to comment upon whether and how this approach could be effective in the USA and how it intersects with current rules, in an interactive discussion.


Kimberly Taylor, Esq.
