A former trial lawyer who has been a partner in global law firms, a federal prosecutor, and a general counsel of an investment bank, David is a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers and a Life Member of the American Law Institute. He has been cited for many years by Chambers for “strategic insight and incredible persuasiveness” and ”ability to comprehend extremely technical and complicated financial matters, and has been voted in the Top 100 of Super Lawyers in New York for many years.

When an active trial lawyer, one adversary described David as “one of the most articulate, persuasive and likeable advocates you will ever meet. The more complicated the matter, the more awesome his presentation. His razor-sharp intellect always comes across. With all this going for him, he also projects his warm and affable side, sometimes with a twinkle in his eye or a self-effacing remark.”

“strategic insight and incredible persuasiveness”

Another lawyer, both trial colleague and adversary, described him as “bright, totally prepared, experienced, very comfortable in court and aggressive.”

David brings these traits and more to bear when he is mediating or arbitrating a case. He is an active listener, a creative problem-solver, and knowledgeable about likely outcomes at trial and on appeal.
