The 10 ½ Biggest Mistakes to Make in an Arbitration and the 11.38 Smartest Things to do Right CLE

  • Arbitration is quite different from litigation as to law, procedure, and protocol.  Lawyers knowledgeable about how to maximize the process for their client’s benefit can increase chances of success and, at a minimum, present the very best case for their client, whether as a claimant or a respondent. 
  • Lawyers sometimes will overlook key legal and procedural issues to tailor a case and its presentation to an arbitrator. 
  • Understanding these key issues can make a presentation for the client much more effective and easier on the lawyer.
  • The discussion includes practice pointers concerning the professional practices which should characterize the conduct of arbitrators, mediators, and advocates.
