New York, NY (January 22, 2019) – NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation), one of the nation’s leading providers of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services, is proud to announce its partnership with The Association of Corporate Counsel-New York City Chapter (ACC-NYC) as a 2019 Diamond Sponsor.
This year marks two years since NAM began its partnership with ACC-NYC, further expanding its relationships with chapters members, as well as with the in-house legal community at large.
