Despite the COVID-19 epidemic, arbitration filings in the United States and worldwide continue to soar. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) alone has administered over 300,000 such disputes this year. With remote proceedings and the demand for cost effective timely resolution of disputes continuing to surge, there is a great need to understand the role and utilization of dispositive motions to help achieve the balance between fairness and efficiency in resolving disputes.
In this program, nationally prominent, deeply experienced neutrals Reg Holmes and Janice Sperow will lead you through an interactive discussion of the authority, standards, proof, timing, proper management, and utilization of this important tool. They will focus this presentation on practical tips, proven approaches, and best practices. Centering on the AAA rules as model rules, this interactive session will also address the role of the managerial arbitrator in meeting the rising tide of arbitral dispositive motions.
