Taft partners William C. Wagner and Michael Diamant co-authored the article “10 Tips for Presenting Complex Cases in Arbitration,” which was published by Law360 on Dec. 19. The article provides tips for presenting complex cases in arbitration from the perspective of a trial lawyer and an arbitrator.
Wagner is an accomplished trial lawyer. He has authored numerous articles on the Department of Defense’s new cybersecurity regulations and has litigated cases in federal and state courts and in arbitrations throughout the United States (e.g., AAA, ICDR, FINRA, and other forums), including a recent business dispute involving a nine-figure contract between defense contractors. He has taught trial skills to lawyers and expert witnesses as an instructor with the National Institute of Trial Advocacy since 2002.
Diamant’s practice encompasses all aspects of intellectual property, trade secret and computer-related law issues, including buying, selling, developing and licensing hardware, software and other technology. He has litigated technology and computer-related matters before numerous courts and arbitration panels. He was recently named a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) and was elected a fellow of the College of Commercial Arbitrators. He has also been appointed to the panel of international arbitrators for the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), the international division of the American Arbitration Association.
