It is very common for New Jersey consumers to unknowingly agree to arbitration clauses when signing up for cell phone plans, gym memberships and bank accounts. Join attorney Jonathan Rudnick for this presentation on how to assist your clients when issues arise in these types of contracts and how to work with arbitration clauses. He reviews the significance of the wording in each clause, how to determine whether the clause is enforceable, and the different options for filing state and federal arbitration claims. Viewers will benefit from Mr. Rudnick's tips on how to prepare for the hearing and the extent of information they must share with opposing counsel. Concluding with a comparison of the benefits of abitration hearings versus court hearings, Mr. Rudnick teaches New Jersey attorneys how to use arbitration clauses to their clients' advantage.
