The law governing the enforceability of arbitration agreements continues to evolve. As both courts and Congress examine arbitration agreements more closely, it has become increasingly important to ensure that arbitration provisions are drafted carefully and that consumers and employees are provided with fair procedures for pursuing their disputes. Businesses should pay close attention to both the Supreme Court's continued interest in the Federal Arbitration Act and the legislative proposals now making their way through Congress.
Please join Neal Berinhout, Associate General Counsel -- Litigation, at AT&T Mobility, and Mayer Brown's Andrew Pincus and Archis Parasharami, as they discuss continuing developments in arbitration laws and provisions. They will focus on:
- Considerations in drafting arbitration provisions in consumer agreements
- Recent and pending arbitration cases before the U.S. Supreme Court
- Information concerning the status of proposed legislation in Congress to restrict or eliminate arbitration agreements
CLE credit is pending.
Access information will be sent to you prior to the event.
