You are invited to attend a stimulating panel discussion on tips and trips for improving arbitration proceedings so that it is a more time and cost efficient process. In particular, the seminar will be examining some of the key differences between arbitration and litigation in terms of collection, production and presentation of evidence (both documentary and from witnesses/experts), as well as differences in the ways in which parties put forward case arguments in arbitration as opposed to litigation. The focus of these discussions will be to highlight that, while arbitration is a vigorous legal process with demanding standards of proof, the procedural flexibility afforded to the parties by the arbitration process (when used effectively) allows for a more streamlined and condensed proceeding.
