Alternative Dispute Resolution
We have long understood that alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) mechanisms may resolve certain disputes better, quicker, and at a lower cost than litigation. We have extensive experience in ADR, including arbitrations, mediations, mini-trials, summary jury trials, and neutral evaluations.
Our attorneys also serve as mediators, arbitrators, referees, trustees, and special masters in many forums, including the American Arbitration Association, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, the United States District Court for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, and the Supreme Court of the State of New York. We also have written, lectured, and taught about ADR for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy, the Practicing Law Institute, and various bar associations’ continuing legal education programs locally, nationally, and internationally. One of our partners also serves as an arbitrator for the American Stock Exchange and has arbitrated disputes between broker-dealers and their customers.
