Melissa Sawyer was quoted in “Drafting an Arbitration Agreement in 2022: the Drafter's Perspective,” a New York Law Journal article examining the issue of drafting arbitration agreements from the perspective of practicing transactional attorneys. Melissa weighed in on three items for inclusion in dispute resolution agreements: an alternative arbitration center the parties may turn to in case their initial choice is no longer an option due to unforeseen events; a mediation clause before parties can move to an adjudicative process; and speed and confidentiality.
