Testimonials

Partner in NJ-NY firm: ”Thank you for your efforts. This has been a long road, and clearly despite [our] best and cooperative efforts along the way, we couldn’t have gotten this done without you.”

 

Partner in NYC firm: “You were the best mediator I’ve seen, as I’ll tell my partners asap. It was a pleasure watching you work.”

 

Partner in NYC firm: “I was impressed with your skills, demeanor and quick grasp of the issues. I sincerely hope we get to work together again.”

 

“We contacted David after we had used two prior mediators unsuccessfully on a matter where personality conflicts, anger and distrust made constructive dialogue difficult.  [In fact, the two prior mediations lasted a total of about 3 hours and neither ended with a handshake (or even a “goodbye”).]  Our first meeting with David lasted all day and did not produce a deal, but David kept up to speed as the litigation progressed and several weeks later, he got us back together and after a dozen or so teleconferences, somehow got a deal done that permitted both sides to move on.”

 

“David was always facilitative and respectful to the parties and lawyers but tough when tough was needed.  He had no agenda except to get a deal done.  If we would have contacted David the first time around I think the parties would collectively have saved millions of dollars in attorneys’ fees.  I won’t make that mistake again.”

 

“While David’s preparation and dedication distinguish him, David’s most impressive skills – in my view – are his abilities to: (1) make the client feel that his, her, or its legal and factual positions have been heard, and (2) find a path forward towards resolution, even when that does not seem possible.”

 

“General Counsel, Hedge Fund: David understands the best way to achieve a common goal while managing different personalities. He demonstrates perseverance and creativity throughout the process and did not stop working when the clock stopped. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

 

Head of litigation at major Pharma company: “Thank you for the tremendous effort you put in to get the parties to the finish line in the months-long mediation. This matter was challenging on several fronts, but you were tireless, creative and extremely effective in navigating it all. Resolution would have certainly been impossible without your thoughtful approach at every turn. I certainly hope to work with you again in the future.”

 

Head of litigation at hedge fund: “David really understands how to make a deal and the best way to achieve a common goal while managing different personalities. He demonstrates perseverance and creativity throughout the process and did not stop working when the clock stopped. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

 

Outside counsel to Global Pharma company: “ David successfully resolved one of the most challenging mediations in my 30 year litigation career. This pre-litigation, commercial dispute between two large companies required an adept touch at dealing with difficult dynamics posed by the views and approach of a key decision maker abroad, and creative approaches to bringing the parties’ positions closer together. Quite simply, our dispute would not have been resolved short of protracted, disruptive litigation without David’s investment of time with the counsel and parties, his persistence, and his thoughtfulness.” (Emphasis added)
