90 Minutes

Discovery is often the most costly part of any dispute. Full-blown discovery in arbitration formerly was considered heresy as on its face it appears to be inconsistent with the very reasons for using arbitration. In recent years, however, more expansive discovery is creeping into arbitration and consequently lengthening the time to final resolution and increasing costs.

So how much discovery is enough and how can it be limited without sacrificing the likelihood of success?

In this 90-minute recorded webinar, an expert panel of attorney/arbitrators provides an insider’s perspective on how counsel can limit discovery and better manage costs without sacrificing party expectations.

Areas covered include:

  • narrowing discovery to optimize efficiency and reduce cost;
  • when to discuss discovery;
  • the most effective and favored discovery devices;
  • arbitrator rulings regarding discovery and the factors arbitrators consider in weighing discovery requests;
  • effective objections;
  • rules related to discovery and how best to use them;

and more.

WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PRESENTATION – Arbitrators, advocates, and anyone interested in the arbitration process and its practical application and continued evolution.
