I'm honored to have been chosen the 2019 Lawyer of the Year for arbitration by NYC Best Lawyers.
I've been invited to be on the faculty at a Pepperdine/ Federal Bar Association conference in Nashville in October. I'll be speaking on a panel entitled "#MeToo: Its Impact on Confidential Settlements, Mediation, and Arbitration of Sexual Harassment Claims;" should be very interesting.
I enjoyed my term as Chair of the Dispute Resolution Section of the NY State Bar Association, and remain active in the Section.
The American Arbitration Association has invited me and eight other mediators in the Northeast to join its Master Mediation Panel for complex commercial mediations.
My chapter on confirming and vacating arbitration awards for a PLI treatise will be published this Fall.
Over the summer I served as a judge for the American College of Civil Trial Mediators law student writing competition. Impressive papers!
"An arbitration primer for litigators" has been published by the State Bar. As co-chair of the arbitration committee, I co-edited this pamphlet. It's geared to litigators at all experience levels, and full of practical advice.
