NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation) has invited all plaintiff and defendant firms and insurance carriers to participate in the company’s major fourth quarter settlement initiative on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 in its Garden City office and on Thursday, November 17, 2016 in its Manhattan office. These 2 days will likely be the largest volume mediation events during the fourth quarter of 2016. Participants will receive a 10% discount off the NAM administrative fee.

Below are the details for both days:

Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at NAM's Garden City office located at 990 Stewart Ave., First Floor, Garden City, NY 11530

Thursday, November 17, 2016 at NAM's Manhattan office located at 122 East 42nd Street, Suite 803, New York, NY 10168

Many of NAM's top-rated Mediators will be available to facilitate the resolution of a substantial number of claims. NAM expects more than 50 plaintiff firms and multiple carriers to participate.

This is an excellent opportunity for attendees to settle cases with several carriers and multiple firms in one day and at one location.

NAM's previous large-scale settlement initiatives in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 resulted in the resolution of more than 80% of the cases mediated.

Roy Israel, President and CEO of NAM stated, “I am thrilled about this November’s initiative and look forward to seeing many of our clients in both our Garden City and New York offices. Considering the success of NAM’s success at past Global Mediation Days, I am confident that we will continue to experience exceptional results at this year’s event.”

Mediators that are scheduled for these days are: Richard P. Byrne, Esq.; Joseph L. Ehrlich, Esq.; Michael R. Rossi, Esq.; Hon. Robert M. Silverson, Jr. and Hon. Peter B. Skelos. If necessary, additional mediators may be added at a later time.
