My chapter on confirming and vacating arbitration awards is part of a PLI treatise published in 2018. You can read it on my Publications page.

The Second Edition of the Treatise has now been released.
My article entitled "Has #MeToo Changed ADR?" appeared in the Spring 2019 volume of the Dispute Resolution Lawyer. You can read it on my Publications page, reprinted with NYSBA's permission.
"An arbitration primer for litigators" has been published by the State Bar. As former 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.

I co-led a task force for the Dispute Resolution Section concerning whether law firms should be encouraged not to mandate arbitration of discrimination claims asserted by their employees. The Section adopted our report on June 4, 2019. It addressed the pros and cons of arbitration. You can find it by googling "NYSBA DRS Reports."
