Earlier this week, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an important decision upholding the enforceability of arbitration agreements with class action waivers. But what does that mean for you and your company?

Stephanie Adler-Paindiris and Brendan Sweeney provide an in-depth analysis of the decision, its implications, and practical considerations for employers that are considering implementing, or updating, their dispute resolution programs.

Brendan Sweeney is Of Counsel in the Long Island office. In 2007, he led the implementation of an arbitration agreement and class action waiver while serving as an in-house lawyer for a large manufacturer and retailer. Brendan’s client succeeded in enforcing the waiver in numerous cases throughout the country. Brendan has also worked with Communications and HR professionals to convey the reality that individual arbitration is a fair and efficient means of resolving disputes.

Stephanie Adler-Paindiris is a Principal and the Co-Leader of the firm's Class Actions and Complex Litigation practice group. In addition, she serves as the Orlando office Litigation Manager. Her practice focuses exclusively on the representation of employers at the trial and appellate level in state and federal courts facing class and collective actions as well as claims of discrimination, retaliation or whistleblowing activity on an individual basis.
