Under many arbitration statutes, the arbitrator can issue subpoenas either at the request of a party or independently. There are, however, numerous challenges, frustrations, as well as strategies for securing pre-hearing discovery in arbitration from non-party witnesses and non-party attendance at final evidentiary hearings.
During this 75-minute recorded webinar, a pair of experienced arbitrators provide a substantive examination of the current trends, successful approaches and strategies that parties and arbitrators have employed to compel non-party discovery and hearing attendance. They also look at the roadblocks that commonly frustrate such efforts.
Areas covered include—
- a review of current federal law;
- representative court cases;
- anecdotal examples of creative approaches to non-party discovery and hearing attendance through arbitrator subpoenas.
If you want to increase your knowledge of the reach of arbitral subpoenas and be better equipped to handle the real-world ramifications of efforts to compel non-party discovery and hearing attendance, you should not miss this webinar.
