Phoenix-Mesa, AZ – Arbitration, the trial alternative, has seen significant changes in recent years, and Arizona Attorney magazine covers them in its November 2010 issue with two articles in a special feature. The magazine also has launched its first-annual ADR & Mediation Guide in the issue.
Providing lawyers with guidance in arbitration this month are two stories. The first article was written by Mark E. Lassiter, a partner at Davis Miles PLLC, who heads the Tempe firm’s Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department.
In “Arizona’s New Revised Uniform Arbitration Act,” Lassiter highlights the major and unique features of Arizona’s RUAA, the Arizona case law that is now effectively overruled by it, and how it will change the landscape of Arizona arbitration law and practice. The RUAA is considered to be the most sweeping reform of Arizona arbitration law in almost a half century.
The second article, “Security, Predictability, Enforceability,” written by Mark A. Nadeau and Kate E. Frenzinger of DLA Piper, explores international commercial arbitration in Arizona.
In addition, Arizona Attorney magazine’s first-annual ADR & Mediation Guide will assist attorneys and their practice. The guide of professionals working in all aspects of ADR is a valuable resource for those seeking an arbitrator or mediator.
The digital edition of Arizona Attorney magazine is available for free to anyone online by visiting the magazine homepage at http://www.myazbar.org/azattorney and clicking on the image of the magazine cover.
“We are committed to providing practice-ready tools that assist lawyers in their day-to-day work,” said Tim Eigo, Arizona Attorney Editor. “We are confident that these articles and our inaugural special guide will be saved and used by Arizona attorneys.”
