Spotlight on JAMS Neutrals: Hon. Stephen G. Crane (Ret.) and Jeffrey Grubman, Esq.

The use of alternative dispute resolution within the media and entertainment industries is on the rise, but what does the long-term future hold?

Join a panel of experts practicing in the fields of film, television, music, commercial theatre and the visual arts who will discuss the types of disputes where ADR is the best fit. Hear their war stories of how they have successfully incorporated tools such as early neutral evaluation, expert determination, mediation, arbitration, and mock trials into their practices. Issues of enforceability, international reach, cost and confidentiality will also be discussed.

This program is of great value to a wide range of media and entertainment lawyers, including both litigation and transactional attorneys, in-house counsel, and pro-bono lawyers. Also, learn about training opportunities for how to go about becoming a neutral -- for example, learn how Volunteer Lawyers For The Arts’ MediateART program works. Please also join us for a networking/cocktail reception following the program.
