Savvy Arbitration Advocacy: Making Arbitration Work for You

Arbitration has grown in leaps and bounds over the last few decades. Court crowding, the difficulty of even getting before a judge on minor motions, judges’ predilection to toss cases via summary disposition as a way of pruning dockets, partisan judges – all these factors have pushed many run-of-the-mill commercial cases into arbitration. A generation ago, many cases arbitrated today would have been tried in court. This change has brought an influx of commercial litigators into the arbitration world. Many do not change their expectations or tactics when they arbitrate. It also has brought clients whose expectations remain stuck on past court experience. 
The panelists will cover the following:
  • Tips to help parties and their counsel craft arbitrations
  • Arbitrator selection
