After the major economic terms of any business agreement, its most important terms involve identifying and allocating risk.  One of the biggest risks in most business, commercial, or real estate agreements is the risk of dispute and costly, protracted litigation.  Arbitration agreements are one of the primary methods by which this substantial risk is limited.  Rather than the parties resorting to costly litigation, they are generally required to seek resolution of their dispute before a neutral arbiter, whose decision in the matter is final and cannot be appealed.  Though these agreements are effective mechanisms for dispute resolution and cost containment, they are also highly controversial and often subject to challenge. This program will provide you with a practical guide the law governing arbitration agreements and drafting their major provisions.
