Attend this webinar to gain a greater understanding of the arbitration process and the steps to properly prepare for arbitration through to the post-hearing brief. Also, learn what to expect and be ready to present at an arbitration hearing as well as the various alternatives to the arbitration process and how to deal with the unexpected.
Why Should You Attend:
You just received notice your dispute is going to be arbitrated. So, what now? The simple answer is “plenty” because going to arbitration means using a quasi-legal process like a trial court where you are going to have to prove your case to an impartial third party. So, if you have not previously done the “heavy lifting” to establish your case then that work, and preparation must start now. To better prepare you this webinar will take participants from the first steps of preparation, through the hearing and post-hearing briefs all the way to the arbitrator’s decision and award including possible options in response to an unfavorable award. Although you might not be able to completely transform a less than “slam dunk” case into a “winner” this webinar will help you put your best foot forward so your case will be as strong as possible.
