LITIGATION V ARBITRATION
A debate on the relative advantages and disadvantages of the two principal means for resolving commercial disputes in an adversarial proceeding.
Join us on October 26 at 5.30 p.m. at the Boston College Club, 100 Federal Street, 36th Floor, to hear Judge Michael Riccciuti (Massachusetts Superior Court, Business Litigation Session) debate Conna Weiner (JAMS) on the relative merits of litigation and arbitration.
PRESENTED BY: THE NEW ENGLAND LEGAL FOUNDATION, THE BOSTON BAR ASSOCIATION, THE MASS BAR ASSOCIATION AND LINKSQUARES
In recent years, arbitration has become a mainstay in resolving legal disputes and arbitration clauses are routinely incorporated into commercial contracts. But while many believe arbitration offers distinct advantages, others question whether it truly provides a cheaper, fairer and more efficient alternative to litigation, particularly where many courts now tailor their proceedings closely to the needs of the litigants. To help answer these questions, NELF and the BBA have invited a judge and an arbitrator to engage in a debate over the relative merits of litigation and arbitration. This moderated debate will also feature commentary by leading litigators and in-house counsel on each of the topics.
