Arbitration-Related Litigation in Texas

09/08/2016

Congress intended for arbitration to be a faster, less expensive alternative to litigation. Businesses frequently include arbitration clauses in their contracts in an attempt to avoid the time and costs associated with the traditional court system. But judging from the steady stream of arbitration-related decisions emanating from state and federal courts in recent years, even the most “air-tight” arbitration clause cannot guarantee that disputes will be resolved without judicial intervention.

Topics include:

  • The Effect of the Governing Law on Arbitration-Related Litigation
  • Pre-Arbitration Litigation
  • Post-Arbitration Litigation
  • Conclusion
