Complex Fraud: Arbitration, Litigation or Both?

In any commercial fraud there are likely to be a number of potential defendants. Those potential defendants will often include a contracting party, other entities in the same group, the individuals behind them, co-conspirators and recipients of the proceeds of fraud. Any claim against the contracting party will frequently be subject to an arbitration clause, but the other potential defendants will not be subject to that clause.

This webinar considers those issues, by reference to a recent dispute in which some of those complexities arose.
