Hybrid, multi-tiered and carve-out dispute resolution clauses

This practice note considers complex dispute resolution clauses and examines the different forms that so-called "hybrid", "multi-tiered" (or "escalation") and "carve-out" clauses may take. It focuses on the issues that may arise in using complex clauses and highlights the potential pitfalls a lawyer may face in drafting these types of clauses.
