In what The AmLaw Daily described as a “blockbuster” ruling, the Supreme Court recently held in AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion that the Federal Arbitration Act preempts state law from categorically mandating the use of class-action procedures as a condition of enforcing arbitration agreements. Central to the Court’s analysis in Concepcion was its discussion of the features of the AT&T arbitration provision at issue, which “provide[s] incentive for the individual prosecution of meritorious claims.”

The Court’s decision in Concepcion is unquestionably a significant development for businesses that have included, or intend to include, arbitration provisions in their consumer and employee agreements. Yet the reach of Concepcion’s holding remains an open question.
