NEWS - Press Release

APRIL 15, 2013


NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation) has invited all plaintiff and defendant firms and insurance carriers to participate in a settlement initiative on June 21, 2013. It will likely be the largest volume, single-day mediation event in New York State during the second quarter of 2013. The location for this day is NAM’s Garden City office, located at 990 Stewart Avenue, First Floor, Garden City, New York 11530.

Many of NAM’s top-rated Mediators are going to be available to facilitate the resolution of a substantial number of claims. NAM expects more than 50 plaintiff firms and multiple carriers to participate in this initiative to close out files before the end of the quarter. This is an excellent opportunity for program participants to settle cases with several carriers and multiple firms in one day and at one location.

NAM’s last large scale single-day settlement initiative, in late 2012, resulted in the settlement of more than 80% of the cases mediated.

Roy Israel, President and CEO of NAM stated, “I am excited about this year’s initiative and look forward to seeing many of our clients settle their cases on Mediation Day. Considering the success of last year’s settlement initiative, we can only expect that this year’s numbers will surpass any single-day mediation event that NAM has ever seen.”

Mediators that are scheduled for this day are: Hon. Elizabeth Bonina, Hon. Robert W. Doyle, Joseph L. Ehrlich, Esq., Lawrence S. Farbman, Esq., Hon. E. Michael Kavanagh, Hon. William C. Thompson and Hon. Howard Miller.

Participants will receive a 10% discount off the NAM administrative fee.

NAM has conference centers throughout New York including, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Garden City, Westchester, Staten Island and Buffalo.
