Chris has participated in arbitrations and prepared Arbitration Agreements for years, and has presented to other lawyers and arbitrators on the preparation of such agreements and the application of various arbitration rules.  Chris can assist parties wishing to arbitrate to draft a post-dispute agreement to govern their arbitration.
