Sample DISPUTE RESOLUTION Contract Clauses

You can prevent litigation and provide a forum to resolve disputes by providing first for mediation, and then for arbitration, if needed. 

Consider adding one of the following clauses into your next contract:

MEDIATION: "All disputes arising out of this agreement shall be submitted to mediation in accordance with the procedures of Arts Arbitration and Mediation Services, a program of California Lawyers for the Arts."

MEDIATION - ARBITRATION: "All disputes arising out of this agreement shall be submitted to mediation in accordance with the rules and procedures of Arts Arbitration and Mediation Services, a program of California Lawyers for the Arts. If mediation is not successful in resolving all disputes arising out of this agreement, those unresolved disputes shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration. The arbitrator shall be selected in accordance with the rules of Arts Arbitration and Mediation Services, a program of California Lawyers for the Arts. If such services are not available, the dispute shall be submitted to arbitration in accordance with the laws of the State of California. The arbitrator's award shall be final, and judgment may be entered upon it by any court having jurisdiction thereof."

ARBITRATION: "All disputes arising out of this agreement shall be submitted to final and binding arbitration. The arbitrator shall be selected in accordance with the rules of Arts Arbitration and Mediation Services, a program of California Lawyers for the Arts. If such services are not available, the dispute shall be submitted to arbitration in accordance with the laws of the State of California.
