What's New

I'm speaking at a webinar on Rule 68 on Sept. 28; my focus will be on adapting the Rule in arbitration.  I have some free registrations, so if you'd like to attend, please shoot an email to abigail@pessenadr.com and I'll arrange it.

I enjoyed my term as Chair of the Dispute Resolution Section of the NY State Bar Association, which ended in June. Join the Section and enjoy the many benefits membership offers!  nysba.org. 

I'm extremely honored to be one of just a handful of NYC firms to have received U.S. News and World Report's highest -- Tier One -- ranking for both mediation and arbitration for 2018.

The American Arbitration Association has invited me and eight other mediators in the Northeast  to join its new Master Mediation Panel for complex commercial mediations.

In June I gave a presentation about arbitrator ethics at the Commercial Arbitration Training sponsored by the State Bar and the American Arbitration Association.

I'm writing a chapter on confirming and vacating arbitration awards for a PLI treatise.

Over the summer I served as a judge for the American College of Civil Trial Mediators law student writing competition.  Impressive papers!

Practical Lawyer invited me to author an article about employment mediation.  You can find it on the Practical Lawyer website, and it's posted on my website too.

"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.  You can find it at  www.nysba.org/Sections/Dispute_Resolution/Dispute_Resolution_PDFs/An_Arbitration_Primer_For_Litigators.html
