Kevin O'Brien quoted in Law360 about arbitration awards
Partner Kevin O'Brien was interviewed for and quoted in the Law360 article, "Justices push states into heart of arbitration award fights," published April 7, 2022.
From Law360, Khorri Atkinson reporting:
"Kevin J. O'Brien, a partner at Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP, echoed that this ruling holds significant ramifications for attorneys and parties contemplating arbitration. One of his key takeaways is that arbitration practitioners will have to be able to counsel their clients on how to properly craft arbitration agreements based on the current state of the law.
"'The Federal Arbitration Act is unusual in that it creates federal jurisdiction for certain motions,' including to compel arbitration, which is governed by Section 4, he said."
