Arbitration requirements, found either within the basic D&O policy form or as an attached endorsement, may appear innocuous but can contain onerous language. Such clauses can be troublesome, especially where binding arbitration is made a mandatory provision of the policy. Arbitration ordinarily means a proceeding voluntarily undertaken by parties who want a dispute resolved on the merits of the case by an impartial decision maker, whose decision the parties agree to accept as final and binding.
