Arbitration is NOT intended to be litigation in a boardroom!

Arbitration is included under the rubric of alternative dispute resolution, because it is supposed to be an alternative to litigation. Yet parties and arbitrators are often inclined to conduct arbitrations as if they were taking place in the courtroom. When this happens, most of the benefits that arbitration has to offer are lost, and the parties would have been better off using the adjudicative system provided by the courts at no cost. During this session, we will explore a variety of unorthodox approaches to arbitration that take advantage of the creativity and flexibility that this form of dispute resolution has to offer. The presentation will include a review of actual methodologies employed by the speakers to facilitate the parties' requirement for a just resolution of a dispute in a timely and cost-effective manner.
