Should the two arbitrators not be able to agree on a choice of the third arbitrator, then the parties shall defer to the procedure for selection of an arbitrator under the Act. None of the arbitrators shall be officers or employees of the parties. Each such arbitrator shall be a lawyer having experience and familiarity with information technology disputes. The arbitrators shall have the right to award costs, fees and expenses, including but not limited to the arbitrators' fees and reasonable lawyers' fees, to the prevailing party.
