I'm honored to have been chosen the 2019 Lawyer of the Year for arbitration by NYC Best Lawyers.
In November, I was a presenter at the annual Consumer Rights Litigation Conference in Boston, speaking about arbitrating consumer statutory claims.
I was asked to join the faculty of the Arbitration Training Institute in Philadelphia on May 16-17, 2019. My topic is arbitration awards. The whole program was amazing; see details at: https://ambar.org/arb2019
My chapter on confirming and vacating arbitration awards is part of a PLI treatise published last year. You can read it on my Publications page. It's chapter 14 of Arbitrating Commercial Disputes in the United States, by David C. Singer (© 2018 by Practising Law Institute),https://www.pli.edu/. Reprinted with permission.
The Second Edition of the Treatise is in the works; stay tuned.
My article entitled "Has #MeToo Changed ADR?" appears 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. You can find it at www.nysba.org/Sections/Dispute_Resolution/Dispute_Resolution_PDFs/An_Arbitration_Primer_For_Litigators.html
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."
