Dear Readers,

Welcome to Top Settlements New York 2016, a special section of the New York Law Journal encompassing settlements and mediations. The lawyers and law firms who are ranked in this special section represent the best of the best in the last 12 months. Their zealous advocacy on behalf of their clients is inspiring and deserving of our respect.

In addition to highlighting the Hall of Fame Settlements, Top 20 settlements and Top 20 mediations reported to Verdict Search, we also break down these listings by categories.

The following pages represent the passion, determination and skillful expertise of your colleagues. The work of these advocates in 2016 was outstanding and we salute them.

If you do not see a case you worked on last year, we encourage you to begin reporting your cases to VerdictSearch. You can submit a case to VerdictSearch by telephone at 212.457.9576. For subscriptions to the VerdictSearch database of 175,000+ cases, call sales at 800.445.6823. VerdictSearch is second to none when it comes to verdict and settlement research and reporting. For over 40 years, VerdictSearch has been the nation’s trusted source for news and research, providing legal and insurance professionals with the most accurate, detailed case reports each week. You can find them online at www.verdictsearch.com.

If you are interested in this topic, please remember that every Monday on page 5, the New York Law Journal runs a special Verdicts & Settlements section in the paper highlighting recently submitted important or newsworthy cases.

Finally, I would like to extend a special thanks to the New York Law Journal sales, marketing and design teams as well as our consultant on this project. Their efforts enabled this fantastic supplement to come together despite tight deadlines and last minute changes.

As always, if you have any thoughts on this program or any other we run here at the New York Law Journal please drop me a line. I can be reached at wcurtis@alm.com.

Warm regards,

Wayne Curtis, Publisher,
