Arbitration Award Database

In May 1989, when the major forums began making their arbitration awards publicly available, SAC started tabulating those awards on a computer database that today contains approximately 47,000 awards.

Arbitration awards are issued from a number of active forums - NASDR*, NYSE, PCX, AAA, to name a few - each with its own set of rules. Through arrangements with all of the forums, plus a network of resources including our subscribers, to furnish us the hardest-to-retrieve award information, SAC compiles all the awards data into one database. You won't find all this information housed under one roof anywhere else.

Our Database is comprehensive and exclusive. And thanks to a unique field-based search system, available only from SAC, the information you seek is right at your fingertips. Compare it against the "text-based" competitors.

*The AMEX, MSRB & PHLX have transferred their arbitration programs to the NASD.

Since its inception in April 1988, the Commentator has covered more than 2,500 targeted cases in its "Articles & Case Law" section; these headnotes and summaries of notable decisions have become one of the Commentator's most popular and most requested features.

SAC's Court Decision Database, which catalogues all of the Commentator court decisions, is now available to subscribers for customized research.

SAC's Database Specialists personally supervise targeted searches of legal theories, concepts and/or fact patterns.

Our search results will be presented on two informational levels, covering the points that are essential to your research.
