Commercial Arbitrations and The Arbitration Clause


Created on October 05, 2017



This program will focus on the benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and more specifically, hot button issues that affect commercial disputes in arbitration today. Given the cost in terms of time, expense, and uncertainty of litigating in the court system, arbitration is a cost-effective and time-efficient alternative to the unpredictability of litigation. Arbitration affords the parties many advantages including confidentiality and privacy, controlled discovery, input into the selection of the arbitrator and finality by virtue of limited rights to appeal.  

Participants will have an opportunity to hear from Hon. John P. DiBlasi, a former Justice of the Supreme Court of New York who is exclusively affiliated with NAM. Judge DiBlasi has extensive experience arbitrating commercial disputes and has been ranked the top mediator in the United States for the past four years in the National Law Journal Annual Reader's Survey.  Join him as he lends his expertise to a discussion of commercial arbitration and the arbitration clause.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify standards for determining whether a contract provides for all arbitrators to be neutral or non-neutral
  2. Obtain interim relief in arbitration and court
  3. Manage esi in arbitration
  4. Determine availability of non-party subpoenas in arbitration and sanctions for noncompliance
  5. Discuss the availability of dispositive motions in arbitration
  6. Achieve default awards in arbitration and court
