Our team recently completed a complex arbitration before a panel of three arbitrators, all conducted over Zoom. This arbitration had been slated to begin in person in New York City on March 16, 2020. It requires no explanation why that did not occur. After deliberation and disagreement among the parties about how to proceed, the Panel reset the hearing date for mid-July, to be conducted entirely remotely.

The hearing is now complete, having included more than a dozen witnesses testifying over 10 very full hearing days, spread over two and a half weeks. Below are some hard-learned lessons shared from our trial team to yours:

1. It works: While it is a very different experience to try a case with team members and witnesses scattered across locations and time zones, it is absolutely doable and can be a very successful trial experience. Don’t let fear of the unknown prevent your client from having her day in court sooner rather than later.
