This three-part webinar boot camp will show participants how they can succeed in arbitration. The presenters, Ron Wilcox and Dan Blinn, will address all aspects of arbitrating consumer claims, from the initial selection of an arbitral forum right up to the time of a final award. This is the 2nd webinar in the series.
