Arbitration Provisions: Law & Venue1. Where is the arbitration to take place?
2. What state's laws apply?
Make sure that the arbitration clause in your contract provides that the arbitration will take place in a specified geographical area (city, county, even state). You'll also want to have the arbitration clause specifically provide that the laws of a certain state will be applied.
Be careful to protect your interests when drafting the arbitration provisions in your contracts.
