Arbitration and Mediation FAQs: Should I Agree to Mediate Future Disputes Arising out of a Business Contract or Transaction?

March 22nd, 2014 Arbitration and Mediation FAQs, Drafting Arbitration Agreements, Drafting Mediation Agreements, Mediation, Mediation Agreements, Negotiation, Small Business B-2-B Arbitration, Small Business B-2-B Mediation Comments Off on Arbitration and Mediation FAQs: Should I Agree to Mediate Future Disputes Arising out of a Business Contract or Transaction?

Suppose you are a business entity or an individual negotiating a contract that contemplates an ongoing business relationship with another person or entity. You need to consider many things, not the least of which is what kinds of provisions, if any, you might want to include in your contract that deal with the contingency of one or more disputes arising in the future. You might decide, for example, to agree to arbitrate disputes. You might decide that arbitration is too risky in the circumstances and that you would rather have a court resolve your dispute, but that you nevertheless want to include provisions in your contract dealing with choice of law, choice of forum, permissible remedies and the like. These are all important decisions that need to made carefully and often with the help of an attorney having skill and experience in such matters.

But they are not the only things that you might consider or be asked by your counterpart to consider. Whether or not you agree to arbitrate, or to litigate but only in a particular forum under the law of a particular state, there is something else you might want or be asked to consider: an agreement to mediate future disputes arising out of or relating to the contract and the business relationship it creates.

Should you give such an agreement some serious thought? There is no single correct answer to that question because, like most other things, the devil is in the details. But, depending on the circumstances, an agreement to mediate as a precondition to judicial or arbitral dispute resolution might be a very good idea. Continue Reading »

The LinkedIn Commercial and Industry Arbitration and Mediation Group is 200 Members Strong!

July 24th, 2009 Commercial and Industry Arbitration and Mediation Group, General 1 Comment »

On May 21, 2009 Disputing and the Loree Reinsurance and Arbitration Law Forum announced the formation of a LinkedIn Commercial and Industry Arbitration and Mediation Group (post available here), an open forum for the discussion of industry and commercial ADR.   At that time the group was 29 members strong, and we are pleased to report that the group has since grown to 200  members.  Discussions have been lively, the group is internationally and professionally diverse, and group members have access to several ADR blogs, as well as articles posted by other group members.  It is an excellent networking and learning opportunity for anyone interested in commercial and industry ADR.

Membership in the group is useful to those of us that are following the unfortunate developments plaguing consumer debt arbitration, and for those who want to keep abreast of  judicial and legislative developments relevant to arbitration law.   A number of industry arbitrators, attorneys, industry people  and arbitration professionals are members. 

Mediation is another key area that is the subject of group discussions and the posting of articles.  The group is proud to have as members a number of accomplished mediators.  Not being a mediator myself, I have learned much about mediation simply through group participation.    

We welcome new members.  Persons who should consider joining this group include arbitrators; mediators; in-house and outside counsel; law professors; dispute-resolution consultants; members of ADR organizations; business entity representatives and principals whose day-to-day responsibilities include dispute resolution; law students and other students of commercial and industry ADR; and anyone else interested in the subject.  The Group is not a forum for, and does not permit, advertising or blatant self-promotion, so our members need not worry about being subject to sales pitches, and the like. 

If you are already a member of LinkedIn, please click here to apply for membership in the Group. If you are not a LinkedIn member, click here, and you will be guided through the process of creating a profile (which does not have to be completed in one step).  Once your profile is started, and you have a log-in name and password, you can apply for membership in the Group (which entails no more than clicking on a button).  Joining LinkedIn is free, as is joining the group.

We hope you’ll join us and participate!
