Quantity of Arbitrators - What are your thoughts?



When a contract is silent with respect to the quantity of arbitrators, what is the best way for an arbitral institution to handle this issue? Should there be a default to three arbitrators rather than one arbitrator based on the claim amount? If yes, what claim amount should be considered for the default? Rather than considering the claim amount, should the default to three arbitrators be based on the complexity of the case? What are the concerns about going with one arbitrator rather than three arbitrators?

Please provide your thoughts/comments below.

Does a party have the right to challenge a party appointed arbitrator for conflicts? What should be the standards, if any, for removal? Are the standards different than those for challenging arbitrators appointed by an arbitral institution? Are the standards different for non-neutral arbitrators?

Have you ever heard of an advocate leaving an arbitrator a voice mail message criticizing his/her interim rulings and proclaiming that he/she is not a good arbitrator? What should the arbitrator do? Should the arbitrator withdraw from the case?

Please provide your thoughts/comments below.

Does it matter where the arbitrator's compensation rate and cancellation fee are placed on her/his resume? Should said rate and fee be listed as the first resume item (i.e., first page at the top)?
