Drafting and Implementing Modern ADR Clauses: How Business Lawyers and Litigators Together Can Get Better Results When A Deal Goes Bad

Presented by: Alternative Dispute Resolution Section
In cooperation with: Quinnipiac University School of Law, Center on Dispute Resolution

Program Time
3.0 Hours

 

About the Program:
The program addresses current trends and best practices in using dispute resolution processes, other than the courts, to cost-effectively and decisively obtain optimal results in business and commercial finance disputes. Topics include an overview of the state of modern ADR practice; a discussion of the ADR options best suited to business disputes; the drafting of ADR clauses in business and commercial finance agreements; collaboration between business lawyers and litigators to create—beginning with the deal drafting stage—well-designed dispute resolution mechanisms that will most directly accomplish your client’s objectives; and a “how to” primer on implementation of these concepts in your practice. While the importance of drafting dispute resolution clauses in business and finance agreements has been gaining recognition, many such clauses are still no more than boilerplate. The panel explores opportunities to create value within the deal by using the initial agreement to structure the means of breaking logjams when a dispute arises, in order to reach a prompt, effective, and potentially deal-saving resolution.
