Procedural Rules
(highlights of ASP's Procedural Rules for Arbitrations)

ASP balances efficiency and fairness through procedural rules that are all-encompassing and self-executing. ASP's procedural arbitration rules provide for:

  • Mailing or faxing to file and serve claims and other papers.
  • A veto/preference method to select the arbitrator(s) from a list (proposed by ASP) of arbitrators who have legal expertise in the subject area of the dispute.
  • A disclosures process to preclude arbitrator conflicts of interest.
  • Full discovery between parties (equivalent to ORCP).
  • Hearing date determination through a calendar availability procedure.
  • 14-day pre-hearing statement of proof (to preclude "trial by ambush").
  • Presumed admissibility of certain documents and affidavits.
  • Testimony by telephone (under certain conditions).
  • Modification of rules by stipulation.
  • Consolidation of hearings (for related disputes).
  • Provisional process is preserved (to allow interim injunctive relief and other provisional remedies from a court pending final resolution by arbitration).

ASP's rules are self-executing, which means that ASP's procedures permit an arbitration to be initiated, conducted, and concluded without the necessity of applying to a court and in spite of the stubbornness, non-cooperation, or non-participation of the other party.
