Fish Out of Water: How Entertainment Attorneys Can Win in Arbitration (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Arbitration)
Tuesday, 6/28, 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm Pacific via ZOOM
This program is FREE for BHBA Members and $35 for Non Members
Arbitration has become an increasingly common forum for the resolution of entertainment industry disputes. Yet many experienced entertainment attorneys can feel as much of a fish out of water in arbitration as Axel Foley did in Beverly Hills Cop or as Ted Lasso does on a British soccer field. This program is designed for transactional and litigation attorneys who negotiate entertainment deals and litigate entertainment disputes. The program will teach attendees: 

  • Best practices for drafting arbitration provisions for entertainment industry agreements to insure confidential, cost-effective, and efficient resolution of entertainment disputes, as well as to gain an advantage for clients and achieve worldwide enforcement of final arbitration awards. 
  • Practice tips for trying and winning your entertainment arbitration case, and how and why it differs from trying a case in court.
  • Special ethical and practical challenges that may come up in entertainment arbitrations and how to deal with them.
  • How to make arbitration an even better experience for attorneys and clients than court litigation.
