Empirical studies show arbitration is a fairer, faster, and less expensive way for employees and consumers to resolve conflicts than costly and time-consuming courtroom litigation. But it is continuously under attack from plaintiffs’ lawyers who benefit the most from lawsuits. ILR fights to preserve arbitration at the federal and state levels.





Due to the clear advantages of arbitration over litigation in any number of situations, and the need to preserve this important dispute resolution process, ILR has established the Coalition to Preserve Arbitration. The Coalition’s membership is varied and broad. AT&T is one member of the Coalition and has provided legal and technical support on an in-kind basis in connection with our arbitration-related activities.
