Counsel Standing At the Crossroads: To Litigate or Arbitrate? (1/11/21)

Counsel sometimes are faced with the dilemma of how to resolve acrimonious situations between parties, including the choice about whether to litigate or arbitrate matters. Contract terms may dictate what one must do in certain matters, and in other instances counsel has the opportunity to draft contract terms that would determine which dispute resolution path is to be taken. The 2nd CBA Annual Arbitration Institute is pleased to  announce that Howard Suskin, Partner, Jenner & Block LLP, and CBA General Counsel, will educate our members on the best analyses to help make the decision to litigate or arbitrate. In his public securities and corporate finance practice, Mr. Suskin has represented clients in a variety of arbitral forums, including the AAA, CBOE, FINRA and the National Futures Association, and also has served as an arbitrator in those forums. 

Mr. Suskin will teach members how to evaluate the pros and cons of arbitration versus litigation for particular disputes. In this interactive session, Mr. Suskin will guide new and experienced lawyers on these important strategic issues and answer questions on this topic from the class members.
