Some 37 years of experience as a trial lawyer and litigator in a wide spectrum of civil matters, relating, among other subject matters, to business transactions, real estate, securities, antitrust, unfair competition, advertising, entertainment, insurance, employment, insurance, intellectual property and e-commerce. I have tried jury and non-jury cases in state and federal courts (including a five month class action), as well as represented parties in arbitrations. When I was practicing at a law firm, I periodically served as an arbitrator, and since 2008 I have arbitrated, as sole arbitrator or as a member or chair of a panel, many cases of all kinds.
