Session Four: The GAR Live Inquisition – the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act
This session will replicate a U.S. senate committee hearing with a succession of witnesses being ‘grilled' by a panel of GAR Live inquisitors, who are seeking to get to the bottom of a problem.
Is the Federal Arbitration Act up to the demands of the modern world? If not, should it be amended? Should it be replaced by the UNCITRAL Model Law?

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
