Arbitration matters, and the teams working on them, can often span geographic borders which in turn can present a number of logistical issues.  These range from the mundane, such as standard paper/binder sizes, to schedule challenges presented by participants residing in multiple time zones, to what can be the biggest logistical challenge of all: language barriers.
