New ADR & Mediation Guide Featured in Arizona Attorney

PHOENIX – Nov. 8, 2010 – Arbitration, the trial alternative, has seen significant changes in recent years, and Arizona Attorney magazine covers them in its November 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.

“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.”

Arizona Attorney magazine is published 11 times per year by the State Bar of Arizona. It provides articles on substantive legal issues, professional trends and feature profiles.

All the stories and the inaugural Guide are available here.
