WINNING - an expensive solution.

Litigation is expensive, time-consuming, inefficient and unpredictable. Litigation is a poor tool for resolving disputes, and is stressful and counterproductive to business as usual. Even petty cases have a way of damaging relationships, tarnishing reputations and eating up enormous sums of money, time and talent. Litigation and trial are rarely in your long-term interest.

Litigation focuses on what happened in the past, and seeks to adjudicate the merits of those historical events before a neutral third-party. Unfortunately, our NY Courts are ill-designed and budgeted to accommodate our increasingly conflict-prone business environment. Indeed, several NY courts have introduced pilot programs mandating early mediation of matters to ensure that only the most hardened positions are litigated before them.

98% of all litigations settle before trial. Why wait - time is money?

Studies show that long-term litigation offers no financial advantage over early resolution. The longer a litigation lasts, the lower the litigant's return on investment of time and money. Why not skip the time and expense of litigation and consider a more favorable if not optimal approach?

New Paradigm = Creative Dispute Resolution

Creative Dispute Resolution offers wide array of advantages. A good settlement negotiation obtain optimal acceptable terms that have the opportunity to place you and your their business in a better, more satisfying position than before the conflict emerged. Creative dispute resolution offers my clients timely resolution of their conflicts BEFORE acrimony hardens their and their adversaries' positions and offers a significantly greater likelihood of achieving a mutually-satisfying outcome at a lower cost.

Benefit from my decades of experience as a sophisticated litigator

My 31 years as a litigator, which include years of study and experience mediating and settling large complex litigations totaling over $1.5 billion, offer my clients problem-solving negotiation techniques in an advocacy context, including:

  • Forensic analysis and people skills to discovery hidden common interests
  • Deep legal experience in business, contract and estate law
  • Sophisticated big-picture analysis coupled with detail-oriented approach
  • Energy and a thoughtful approach that ensures that all reasonable opportunities for settlement are explored.

My Value-Added Proposition:

  • Help facilitating discussion and resolution
  • Assist my clients to redefine the goals and articulate the broader business interests
  • Provide creative problem-solving techniques lead to better solutions
  • Intuitive understanding of people and strategy
  • Offer empathy and natural compassion that brings parties together to craft mutually-satisfying solutions based on common interests
  • Proven track record of resolving conflicts, often with as little as a letter and phone call campaign
  • Process Flexibility - if negotiation fails, next level resolution tools of arbitration and mediation are always available in lieu of court-based litigation.


You are in the business of "business as usual" Don't let litigation of conflicts sidetrack you from your mission. Let me provide your roadmap to resolution.
