    Join the two lawyers who argued the landmark Supreme Court decision, Shearson v. McMahon, Theodore Krebsbach and Theodore Eppenstein, along with George Friedman Director Dispute Resolution, FINRA and Robert Davidson Executive Director of JAMS Arbitration Practice for a spirited and informative discussion of the mandatory arbitration issue. As a result of the landmark Supreme Court decision, Shearson v. McMahon, 482 U.S. 220 (1987), public customers who want to access the financial markets have had to agree to a nearly universal provision requiring mandatory arbitration of their disputes. Is this in the public’s best interest? With the Obama Administration’s White Paper proposal for a study of mandatory arbitration by the S.E.C., the issue has once again made headlines.
