Thomson Reuters Practical Law has released the latest Maryland arbitration Practice Note, Compelling and Staying Arbitration in Maryland, which was authored by Kramon & Graham principals Andrew Jay Graham, Jean Lewis and Louis Malick. The guide provides practical, state-specific information to lawyers seeking judicial assistance to compel or stay arbitration in Maryland state court.
When a party commences a lawsuit on an issue subject to an arbitration agreement, the opposing party may need to seek a court order to stay the litigation and compel arbitration. Likewise, when a party starts an arbitration proceeding in the absence of an arbitration agreement, the opposing party may need to seek a court order staying the arbitration. In “Compelling and Staying Arbitration in Maryland,” the authors describe the key issues counsel should consider before seeking judicial assistance, and outline the steps to obtaining a court order.
“Compelling and Staying Arbitration in Maryland” is Kramon & Graham’s second collaboration with Thomson Reuters Practical Law. An earlier resource guide, “Enforcing Arbitration Awards in Maryland,” was published last year.
