I'm delighted to be recognized by Who'sWho Legal in the field of commercial mediation - one of just 20 New York mediators to be given this honor.
I'm also honored to have been awarded U.S. News and World Report's highest ranking for both arbitration and mediation for 2022.
In July, 2022, I was a faculty member training new arbitrators for the annual arbitration training program given by the NYSBA Dispute Resolution Section and the American Arbitration Association. I presented on arbitrators' ethical obligations.
In April, 2022, I was a presenter for an on-line colloquium organized by Arbitrate.com; our topic was the new federal law amending the FAA to invalidate mandatory arbitration of sexual harassment and sexual assault claims, EFASASHA. All employment neutrals and practitioners need to be aware of this!
In February, 2022, I was thrilled to learn that, based on parties' evaluations, I've been included on the AAA's Master Mediator Panel.
In February, 2022, I was a presenter for a webinar on mass arbitrations sponsored by the College of Commercial Arbitrators.
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. It's chapter 14 of Arbitrating Commercial Disputes in the United States, (© 2018 by Practising Law Institute), https://www.pli.edu/. Reprinted with permission. 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. 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."
