The U.S. Supreme Court has now unequivocally endorsed the arbitration of consumer claims on an individual basis, but many businesses have yet to take full advantage of this significant development in the law. Implementing a consumer arbitration program—and enforcing it—may require some time and resources. But it’s well worth it. The cost of resolving disputes in the courts continues to rise, and court battles can drag on for years. In comparison, arbitration is both cheaper and a lot quicker. 

In this webinar, our experienced arbitration litigators will guide you through the process, from commencing an arbitration proceeding to confirmation or vacatur of the award.
