The risk of mass arbitrations is steadily rising, and companies should no longer ignore the threat posed by this increasingly prevalent tactic which can have extensive financial consequences. Mass arbitration occurs when a substantial number of consumers, typically hundreds or thousands, file coordinated yet individual arbitration claims against the same company, all relating to the same issue and oftentimes characterized by inaccurate or unfounded allegations.
