The award is one of the most important reasons parties engage in arbitration. Relegating the award to an afterthought, and allowing the other elements of the hearing to assume primary importance and become the prime consideration of the parties and advocates could be costly. During judicial review of a final award, courts generally focus not on whether the panel reached the right result, but on whether the award actually represents the parties’ expectations, results from a process proscribed by the arbitration clause, and reflects a process that was fair, thorough and above reproach. This 80-minute recorded webinar is a detailed examination of the arbitral award – its form, its substance, and how its finality can be protected – and covers the following areas:

  • types of awards (simple/general, itemized, reasoned, hybrid, etc.);
  • the need for disclosure;
  • how the contract affects the award;
  • the panel’s deliberative process;
  • using case management techniques to prepare the award;
  • drafting the award;
  • statutory grounds for vacating awards and how to protect the award;
  • modification or clarification requests.

Following the presenters' blueprint for award preparation and writing will provide awards that are final, remain final, and satisfy the parties.
