We are delighted today to introduce the new Arbitrate.com, which has been re-built and re-designed from the ground up to offer a powerful set of updated features and capabilities.
This launch has taken many months of work and planning, and we’re delighted to be finally sharing it with all of you in the global arbitration community. We aspire for Arbitrate.com to lead the way in positioning arbitration as a modern, accessible, and trustworthy form of dispute resolution.
When the two of us had our first planning conversations for Arbitrate.com, we sketched out our vision for what we wanted the site to represent:
The arbitration community is vital, global, and open to what’s ahead. Newly minted lawyers and arbitrators around the world are reinventing the practice of arbitration as you read this. Innovative dispute resolution practitioners and lawyers are embracing the disruptions wrought by the pandemic, and leveraging the lessons learned to keep the practice nimble, modern, and relevant.
Online arbitration (OArb), mixed-mode, judicial arbitration, and med-arb are pushing the frontiers of practice and inventing new ways to meet the needs of parties. We think the promise of arbitration — faster, better, fairer outcomes — is brighter than ever.
We are proud of the work the team has done bringing this vision into reality, and we hope that the new Arbitrate.com (accompanied by our newsletter Arbitration Today) will pave the way for the next century, cementing arbitration’s vital role in conflict management and dispute resolution.
