Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our firm recognizes and actively promotes the growing field of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in an effort to help our clients and others resolve their disputes in the most efficient, cost-effective and effective ways possible. We know that litigating disputes in court is not always the preferred course to achieve desired goals or objectives. Finding a well-crafted resolution through mutually-determined mediation is a real and viable alternative. Similarly, quicker, more flexible, private and cost-efficient arbitration is often a more preferable path to resolution.

Our firm’s ADR practice group is well-versed in all forms of alternation dispute resolution. Our ranks include experienced practitioners, including former trial and appellate judges and experienced litigators, who provide their services as third-party neutrals in claims and have litigated matters in numerous legal areas. This group also counsels other attorneys and clients with respect to negotiations, settlements, appeals and early neutral evaluation of cases, as well as advice on drafting ADR agreements and clauses in a variety of contracts. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of this important and growing area of practice.

Our lawyers have been retained as arbitrators and mediators through counsel, as well as by appointment by judges and have received training through the New York Office of Court Administration. Our attorneys serve on the rosters of prominent ADR service providers, including on the National Roster of Commercial Arbitrators of the American Arbitration Association, NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation), and the Nassau County Bar Association. Members of this group also sit on a variety of federal and state court panels.

In addition, our lawyers represent clients and advocate for them in mediations and arbitrations, including in complex commercial matters of every kind and nature, business break-ups, labor and employment, personal injury, fee disputes, insurance, business, and other litigation matters. We have handled arbitrations and mediations throughout the New York metropolitan area as advocates for our clients.
