Crafting the Best Arbitration and Mediation Clauses for Specific Employment and Business Contracts

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

This informative session addresses drafting arbitration and mediation clauses for employment and business contracts. It is the perfect opportunity to learn about tailoring clauses to the specific disputes that may arise in situations anticipated in specific contracts. Sample arbitration and mediation clauses and articles on the subject will be distributed.


The panelists will discuss the reasons why there is no ideal arbitration clause for all contracts. Instead a contract can be tailored to each unique situation. Employment agreements and business agreements should have a mediation clause that identifies the venue, time, governing law, discovery, which tribunal will administrate it, as well as what you will do if you cannot agree on a mediator. Otherwise, ADR can be more expensive and prolonged then litigation in the courts.
