Litigators in New York state now have a new arsenal at their disposal. Stephen P. Younger and Muhammad U. Faridi of Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler, who are editors of the firm’s NY Commercial Division Law blog, have put together the “New York Commercial Division Practice Guide” (the Guide). The Guide is part of the Litigation Practice Portfolio Series available from Bloomberg Law. The Guide, which will be updated yearly, provides valuable direction to both experienced and less experienced New York commercial litigators. With a foreword by former Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman and footnoted through 2017, the Guide supplements its text with useful “practice tips” and model forms.

The Guide starts off with the basics—setting out the rules of each Commercial Division justice and providing commentary on each of the rules of the Commercial Division as a whole, and containing crucial footnotes to the Commercial Division Advisory Council’s memoranda that provide the rationale behind many of the Commercial Division rules. The Guide then provides a roadmap of how to get your case into the Commercial Division and what to do if an attorney filing a Request for Judicial Intervention fails to designate the matter as a commercial case.
