Litigators are often entering a mediation or arbitration with dispute resolution clauses that are drafted too vaguely, too specifically…and sometimes are just right. Join our presenters as they will give their respective “insider’s view” into what business clients want and expect in mediation and arbitration, and what arbitrators see as frequent pitfalls – and best practices – in how ADR clauses are interpreted by outside counsel, and what litigators can and should do in the face of a problematic clause. They will discuss common issues that arise when a clause is unclear, offer examples of how litigators either help or hurt the efficiency and effectiveness of the arbitration process when dealing with a poorly drafted ADR clause, and provide some best practices and insights to attendees.
