In dispute resolution, the bottom line often is the bottom line. Arbitration was conceived to be a less expensive alternative to litigation, but recent trends have chipped away at its effectiveness, making arbitration an increasingly expensive proposition. In this presentation, veteran arbitration and commercial litigation attorneys will offer battle-tested strategies for controlling costs during arbitration proceedings. Specific topics they will address include selecting an arbitration service provider, pre-arbitration planning, use of motions, prehearing briefs, opening and closing statements, witnesses, exhibits, attorneys’ fees, and common mistakes that add unnecessary expense.
Gibson will be joined in the #ACCAM16 panel discussion by Edward Cassady, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Robins & Morton; Robyn Miller, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, CallisonRTKL Inc.; and Komal Patel, Assistant General Counsel, The Home Depot.
