Please join the CPR Institute and Pepper Hamilton for "How to Save Arbitration from Itself," our third annual Philadelphia Regional Meeting. Matthew H. Adler, a partner in the Litigation Department of Pepper Hamilton and chair of the International and Domestic Arbitration Practice Group, and Jeremy Heep, a partner with Pepper Hamilton and a co-chair of the firm's Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department and Antitrust and Competition section, will be speaking.
Commercial arbitration has come under increasing criticism for importing the disadvantages of court litigation – such as long and costly discovery periods, discovery motion fights, and drawn out hearings – without any of litigation’s attendant advantages. If this trend continues, more and more parties will opt to fight out their complex commercial cases in court instead of arbitration, thus missing out on the myriad of benefits arbitration can offer. This VIP networking event will feature prominent inside counsel, outside counsel, neutrals and academics discussing the criticisms facing commercial arbitration today, the delicate balance between party autonomy and efficiency and offer innovative solutions for how clients, counsel, neutrals and arbitral institutions can best optimize arbitration to efficiently resolve disputes.
