|Whether you are in a domestic or international arbitration, the parties always have the power to change:
1) What rules they are proceeding under,
2) What institution, if any, administers the arbitration,
3) Where the arbitration will take place, and
4) Who the arbitrator(s) will be.
All they have to do is agree.
Thank you very much, all of you who have endorsed me on Linked-In, and elsewhere.
I am endorsing only those persons with whom I have worked as fellow neutrals,
or as law faculty colleagues. The only advocates I am endorsing are those whom I know so well
that I could not be neutral in one of their cases. I hope this policy doesn't disappoint anyone,
as I gave it a lot of thought.
Your comments are most welcome, as always.
