US Arbitration Toolkit
Resources to assist counsel with US commercial arbitration and drafting alternative dispute resolution clauses and agreements.
In the US, arbitration ( www.practicallaw.com/4-107-6426) is often viewed as a more efficient and cost-effective alternative to litigation. Commercial arbitration generally gives the parties greater finality to their disputes, limits (or even eliminates) expensive pre-hearing discovery and offers more procedural flexibility than does litigation. The US Arbitration Toolkit offers a variety of resources designed to give attorneys a basic understanding of several important aspects of arbitrating commercial disputes in the US, including how to:
Draft a proper arbitration agreement calling for arbitration in the US.
Proceed before the American Arbitration Association (AAA) ( www.practicallaw.com/7-502-5657) and other institutions.
Appoint an arbitrator in the US.
Secure interim relief.
Obtain evidence from non-parties.
Enforce arbitral awards in the US.
