The Winning Edge: Resolving High-Stakes Sports Conflicts with ADR
Friday, June 4, 2021 | 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EST | 1.5 NY CLE

Moderator: Hon. Ariel E. Belen (Ret.), FCIArb | JAMS New York

Judge Belen will moderate a panel of mediators, arbitrators and sports law experts who will share their views on the use of mediation and arbitration in resolving sports-related disputes, discuss recent developments in sports law conflicts, and address changes and lessons arising out of the worldwide pandemic.

While the financial and legal impact of COVID-19 has not yet been fully realized, sporting events have been heavily impacted. This panel will examine challenges faced by amateur and professional athletes, sports clubs and leagues, and commercial markets involved in the world of sport. Speakers will consider how preventing, managing and resolving these disputes using mediation and arbitration can benefit all parties and the industry at large. Panelists will address issues ranging from multi-million-dollar employment battles, to high-profile eligibility challenges, to the implementation of diversity, equity and inclusion commitments.
