Is My Arbitration Clause Enforceable?

Posted: October 29, 2019 by Lauren N. Rutkowski
Maryland legislative policy favors the enforcement of arbitration and mediation agreements. Despite the fact that arbitration and mediation agreements are favored, these clauses and agreements still must adhere to the general contract principles established in Maryland. [This means arbitration clauses are subject to standard contract defenses.] Unfortunately, typographical errors and ambiguous language could lead to an otherwise valid arbitration and mediation agreement being invalidated by the court.
