Discovery: Best Practices For Construction Arbitration

Discovery: Best Practices For Construction Arbitration

Discovery Best Practices for Construction Arbitration_675

This program will be followed by a networking reception with refreshments for those attending the program in person.

A major advantage that construction arbitration has over litigation is the ability for the parties to design the process to be efficient and cost effective and fit the dispute and the parties. During this session, you will learn from leading construction lawyers, arbitrators and case administrators about best practices to better manage the arbitration process and pre-hearing exchanges of information in construction disputes.

The Pre-Hearing Conference–Three Golden Rules:

Do not simply go through a form checklist. Recognize it as your opportunity to begin presenting your case and to craft a pre-hearing exchange of information that best meets your client's needs. Explain to the arbitrator(s) (i) why what you want is necessary and appropriate; (ii)  why it will save the parties time and money; and (iii) why what you want (or what you want to dispense with) is not prejudicial to the other side.

Presented by NYSBA Dispute Resolution Section, Domestic Arbitration Committee Co-Chairs, William Crosby, Esq. and Loretta Gastwirth, Esq. and NYSBA Real Property Law Section, Construction Committee Co-Chairs, Brian Lustbader, Esq., Gavin Lankford, Esq. and Brandon Reiner, Esq.
