David Attisani, practice group leader and chair of the firm’s Insurance & Reinsurance Group, co-wrote "An Elephant in the (Arbitration) Room - The Power Of Panels and Its Outer Limits," which appeared as a featured article in the ARIAS US Quarterly’s Fourth Quarter 2008 edition. 

The article, which is the first installment of a two-part series, examines the outer limits of arbitrators’ powers in the face of the increasing complexity of reinsurance relationships—a trend that has led arbitrators to engage in traditionally judicial acts where their authority is not clearly established.
