When:  Oct 26, 2021 from 13:00 to 14:00 (ET)

Join us for a skill development session that will focus exclusively on the component of contentions preparation for an intercompany arbitration case.  The advocate’s ability to present a cogent and persuasive narrative before the arbitrator leads to the opportunity to prevail and secure subrogation recovery.  This webinar will go beyond the basics and look at effective openings; logical and easy-to-follow transitioning to liability and damages argument complimented by the integration of Evidence and creation of a proper and persuasive closing.  Fundamental arbitration advocacy concepts such as the use of theory and theme; the understanding of script theory and where and how best to incorporate evidence at the optimal time in the narrative will be examined.  This fast paced engaging one-hour session brings together tips, techniques and practical arbitration advocacy skill sets culled from over 30 years working in the arbitration industry.
