Mr. Goldstein leads Bar initiative on Arbitral Subpoenas

Mr. Goldstein acted as the rapporteur and task force chair for the New York City Bar Association’s newly-issued Annotated Model Arbitral Witness Summons.

The Annotated Model Arbitral Witness Summons represents nearly two years of drafting, research, and analysis that was undertaken with the objective of providing a “best practices” resource in an area of arbitral practice where the law is uncertain and there is relatively little published guidance.  The Annotated Model Arbitral Witness Summons can be found on this website by clicking the link HERE.
