60 Minutes

As an advocate, you want to present the strongest case before an arbitrator that you possibly can for your client. You might be surprised, however, at the mistakes that are routinely made even by experienced practitioners that can negatively impact a case and the result.

Presented by two top arbitrators who have conducted hundreds of arbitrations and mediations, this 60-minute webinar will examine exactly what an advocate shouldn’t do at arbitration. Some of the problem areas include--

  • allowing pre-hearing discovery to get out of hand;
  • presenting redundant witnesses;
  • unnecessary three-arbitrator panels;
  • failing to know (and follow) the applicable rules;
  • overlooking the power of arbitrators to grant interim remedies;
  • opposing confirmation or appealing confirmation on any ground other than exceeding powers;

and more.

Whether you are new to the arbitral forum or an experienced practitioner, this webinar will keep unfortunate “surprises” to a minimum and help to ensure that oversights and miscalculations don’t pull the rug out from under your case.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PRESENTATION – Arbitrators, advocates, academics, and anyone interested in arbitration advocacy and the dynamics of ADR.
