The bottom line for businesses is that its time to dust off your standard contracts and review the arbitration provisions to make sure they seek the maximum benefit from this new law.

For consumers, and class action plaintiffs lawyers, this case, AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion is a big blow from a court divided (5-4) along partisan lines.
