Arbitration

 

Selendy & Gay’s deep knowledge of the specialized intricacies of arbitration, combined with the courtroom skills of our partners, have resulted in high value awards and settlements for clients as claimants and respondents in their most sensitive and complex matters.

We draw on our experience to craft practical strategies to achieve our clients’ goals when their businesses or reputations are at risk, making appropriate use of the range of levers and rules available in arbitration, such as those relating to threshold jurisdictional issues, the territorial reach of arbitration subpoenas and other issues concerning party and non-party discovery, the interaction of the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) with state arbitration law, public policy exceptions to arbitrability, post-hearing review standards, and enforcement of awards.

We have achieved successes in bet-the-company arbitrations involving multiple parties, jurisdictions, and related litigation such as court proceedings for temporary restraining orders and for discovery in aid of international arbitration. We have prevailed in both ad hoc arbitrations and also arbitrations administered by the major arbitral providers, such as the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and its International Centre for Dispute Resolution (“ICDR”), JAMS, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”), and UNCITRAL. Among other areas, we have arbitrated over private equity investments, nuclear and other types of energy, corporate governance and “divorce”, executive employment and lift outs, trade secrets, and intellectual property rights.
