Starting Off Right: Drafting Successful Arbitration Clauses and Agreements
An efficient and effective arbitration begins with a strong foundation – a well-crafted arbitration clause or agreement. Whether included in a larger contract or negotiated after a dispute has arisen, a properly drafted arbitration clause or agreement ensures that the tribunal is constituted correctly, has the necessary jurisdiction to handle the dispute, and can deliver an enforceable award. Join TCAS’s expert panel on drafting arbitration clauses and agreements to learn how to ensure your arbitration does not contain traps for the unwary, and your award survives any attempt to overturn it or set it aside.
