Keeping Arbitration Safe for Texas

It doesn't make for a good day when learning that your livelihood and passion are in jeopardy. In 2007 we were informed that the Texas Legislature was contemplating a bill that required disclosure of all arbitration awards. Panic. We were helpless.

Consent or Agreed Awards and the New York Convention – What Is the Status?

In 2018, several developments coalesced to demonstrate a felt need among international disputants for an alternative to arbitrating cases to award. The final report of the Global Pound Conferences was issued reporting on the conferences held from 2016 to 2017 in 24 countries and obtaining over 4,000 responses to consistent questions about the needs and desires of the users of ADR.

Our Mission
