Domestic Arbitration

Our attorneys serve as both advocates and arbitrators in domestic arbitrations before the American Arbitration Association, JAMS, and other arbitral institutions involving contract, business tort, insurance coverage, and other commercial disputes. As advocates, we bring decades of domestic litigation and trial experience to the table, adjusting our strategies to maximize their effectiveness in the domestic arbitration forum. Our experience as arbitrators makes us better advocates as we understand how arbitrators think and what points are likely to be most persuasive.
