Hiring the arbitrator
Speed things up! Please review the information that I require on the page about hiring the arbitrator
Conflicts of interest
Contacting me is not the same as hiring me. Before an arbitrator can be hired, whether for private or court annexed arbitration, the arbitrator and the parties need to know whether the arbitrator has any relationships which could constitute conflicts of interest, or which might require disclosure under codes of arbitrator conduct so as to avoid the appearance of lack of neutrality. So, in your e-mail, let me know:
Who are the parties?
Who will be directly affected by the outcome?
Who are the main witnesses for each side?
Do not tell me the specifics of the dispute until I have determined whether I have any conflicts of interest. Inquiring whether I am available as an arbitrator is not a means to disqualify me from continuing to represent my existing clients.
