An advantage of arbitration proceedings is that they are confidential. But be careful: You need to consult the attorneys at DCL during every step of the process (even before you agree to an arbitration clause) to build in as many protections as possible to preserve that confidentiality, if it is important to you. Consult us early and often when considering entering into an arbitration agreement or provision, and before you get involved in arbitration if you are the claimant, and as soon as you hear about the arbitration if you are a respondent.
