Now that we are all faced with the reality of social distancing, it is imperative that we use technology to continue working while adhering to the government regulations. Video conferencing and tele-conferencing is fully operational enabling mediators to continue providing seamless alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services. 

Video conferencing enables attorneys to continue working remotely, serve the best interests of their clients, continue to move cases forward, and permits disputes to be resolved without waiting indefinitely for the courts to reopen. 

Join this webcast to learn how to continue practicing law utilizing technology-enabled ADRs. You will also learn: 

  • How to continue with the resolution of matters in light of court closures;
  • Work- arounds to resolving disputes via the use of technology;
  • How the actual process of conducting arbitrations and mediations via technology works.

Justice of the Supreme Court, Bronx

Having served on the bench for nearly 20 years, Honorable Larry S. Schachner has  developed an impeccable reputation for his judicial temperament, integrity and superior settlement skills.

His experience on the bench has given him a broad range of knowledge in numerous areas of the law related to Employment (including matters related to sexual harassment, discrimination, and hostile work environment claims, among others), Labor Law, Maritime Law / Jones Act, Medical Malpractice, Municipal Liability, Negligence, Premises Liability, Real Estate, Tort and Product Liability and Personal Injury.

Well regarded by practicing attorneys who appeared before him over the years, Judge Schachner has been described as: “One of the smartest judges in the Bronx and in New York City”, “Extremely intelligent, he knows the law, top shelf”, “Just a magnificent person”, “Very proactive about pushing for settlements in cases, and that is just one of his good features. It’s invaluable”, “You can go up and down the Bronx Bar and I would be shocked if anybody gave a less than stellar report, and that goes for both sides.”
