Too often advocates do not properly consider how they are perceived by the arbitrator or give proper thought to the effectiveness of the tools they are providing to assist the arbitrator in rendering a decision. Every advocate should step into the shoes of an arbitrator—if just for a day—to see thing’s from an arbitrator’s perspective.

This 90-minute webinar will examine the steps an advocate can take to ensure optimal presentation of a case, that the arbitrator is receiving the resources and information that will enable him or her to come to an informed decision, and ultimately improve the chances of success. Areas covered will include—

  • the vital tools and resources an advocate needs to provide to the arbitrator to support the decision making process and how these tools should be prepared and presented;
  • how an advocate should collaborate with the opposition;
  • what to do to show respect for the arbitration process;
  • things to avoid when in front of an arbitrator;
  • how to maintain credibility;
  • disclosure responsibilities and transparency; and more.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:  Advocates, arbitrators, academics, and anyone interested in the dynamics of arbitration.
