Attendees will also learn about such optional provisions as “step” clauses, discovery limitations, venues, and appeals. The second part of the program will focus on specific provisions, and attendees will walk away with sample clauses and practice tips on drafting and utilizing dispute resolution clauses.

Who should attend? Attorneys who negotiate and draft contracts; in-house counsel who negotiate, draft and approve contracts; business executives, attorneys who advocate in arbitration and arbitrators who interpret and apply dispute resolution provisions.
