Arbitrator/Mediator Roster

The sector specialism of arbitrators and mediators is often cited as a key attraction of these dispute resolution methods. This Roster has been created so as to enable prospective parties to an arbitration or mediation the ability to identify potential candidates with technology experience relevant to their dispute. ITechLaw hopes that the Roster is a useful tool to help resolve technology related disputes. Your attention is drawn to the disclaimer below. The ITechLaw Privacy Policy applies as appropriate.
