Tuesday, September 28, 2021 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Bob Davidson, the Executive Director of JAMS Arbitration Practice, Marc Goldstein, the Principal of MJG Arbitration & Mediation, and Grant Hanessian, the Principal of Hanessian ADR, on "Defying Conventional Wisdom--Time to Do Away with Irreparable Harm and Likelihood of Success?" The discussion will focus on the standards (both official and unofficial) used by arbitrators in emergency relief and interim measures applications, including the new JAMS International Arbitration Rules (one of which replaces the interim relief provision with the UNCITRAL standards).
We will also be joined by Club Member David Brodsky, the Principal of Brodsky ADR, and the author of an article entitled Getting Real About Discovery in Arbitrations, published in the March 13, 2020 edition of the New York Law Journal. Mr. Brodsky will lead a discussion about reconciling the language of Section 7 of the FAA with today's reality of remote arbitral hearings and whether third party witnesses can be required to appear remotely before a Tribunal.
