Prior to ascending to the bench, pursued several civil, NYSE, AMEX and FINRA arbitrations, involving reinsurance disputes, broker-customer disputes, and employment and licensing issues.  Also litigated broad spectrum of complex commercial disputes: Construction, employment, breach of contract, shareholder oppression, breach of restrictive covenants, NJ and Nev casino licensing, etc.

 Manner of managing judicial caseload similar to non-judicial civil mediation and arbitration. Developed unique and highly successful Intensive Settlement Conference (ISC) paradigm that involved extensive “hands-on” judicial participation in mediation-like setting, employing salutary mediation principles. Presented programs and published in detail on the process. If ISC failed, expeditiously tried cases, the majority without a jury, and always with an expeditious opinion, primarily delivered orally from the bench, with extensive findings of fact and conclusions of law, and always in the presence of the parties to ensure their understanding of the process and the result.

In nearly four years since judicial retirement, mediated or arbitrated more than 100 complex matters, involving breach of restrictive covenants, environmental contamination, oppressed minority shareholder claims, will contests, breach of multi-million dollar software sales contract, age discrimination and unjust dismissal,  construction dispute, breach of international executive employment contract, personal injury, breach of commercial lease, and complex family matters involving support, custody, equitable distribution of closely held businesses.
