Binding arbitration has been used for decades in construction and insurance related disputes, and is increasingly being used in consumer, employment and contract disputes of all kinds. Arbitration can be entered into in two ways. The parties may be contractually obligated to arbitrate, as a consequence of having included a binding arbitration clause in a contract. Or, after a dispute arises, the parties can agree to arbitrate it. Either way, it is important to have an experienced arbitrator whose judgment is respected.
Will has arbitrated, either as a single arbitrator or as a panelist, dozens of insurance, employment, consumer, contract, and construction matters.
Drafting Arbitration Clauses
Will is available to assist you, your client and opposing counsel in structuring an arbitration process tailored to a particular dispute. The parties are free to make virtually any agreement imaginable with respect to the schedule and rules which will govern the process.
