Party-Appointed Arbitrators | The Presumption of Bias

Party-appointed arbitrators have traditionally been partisans for the party that selects them.  This presumption of bias creates practical and ethical issues for both arbitrators and the parties.  This presentation will explore how the peculiarities and challenges of party-appointed arbitrators (both neutrals and non-neutrals) should be addressed in the arbitration agreement and managed before and during the hearing.
