Consensual Alteration of Arbitration Clauses

Complaints about reinsurance arbitration clog conference agendas and fill up the trade publications. Among the complaints are those about the party-appointed arbitrator system, which allows arbitrators to be predisposed to the appointing party; i.e., an advocate arbitrator.

This memorandum is intended only as a general discussion of these issues. It is not considered to be legal advice. We would be pleased to provide additional details or advice about specific situations.
