    New Tools Of The Trade

  • Small Lights Big Effects

Business

  • Arbitration Friend or Foe?

    As a professional photographer, should you beware of alternative dispute resolution?

    If there's one aspect of contracts frequently misunderstood or rarely given due consideration, it's provisions relating to dispute resolution, and specifically, the increasingly common use of the alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedures of mediation and arbitration.
