How Do We Resolve the Dispute? Arbitration/Mediation and the Traditional Bond Forms

Back to Package

On this NASBP Virtual Seminar, Marilyn Klinger of SMTD Law joins us to discuss arbitration and mediation requirements related to traditional bonds (AIA, ConsensusDocs, EJCDC, Federal (FAR) Standard Form 25 forms) when there is a claim against performance and/or payment bonds. In addition to examining the arbitration and mediation provisions of the traditional bond forms, Klinger will discuss the ins and outs of arbitration enforcement, multi-party issues that can complicate arbitration, incorporation by reference issues, and pre- and post-contract termination. You will not want to miss this in-depth look into the sometimes-overlooked process of arbitration and mediation involving sureties.
