On April 26, 2018, Professor Elayne E. Greenberg moderated a panel on the Economics of Dispute Resolution at Cravath’s 2018 Summit on Global Dispute Resolution. The distinguished panel included Deborah Miller, Vice President and Associate General Counsel of Oracle; Joseph P. Richburg, Vice President & Assistant General Counsel, Litigation of the CBS Corporation; Josel Daniel Amado, Partner of Miranda & Amado, Karin DeMassi, Partner of Cravath, Swaine & Moore, LLP and Christopher P. Bogart, CEO of Burford Capital.  image

The panel and the audience engaged in a lively discussion about how to adopt an early settlement strategy, synchronize in house counsel’s and claims counsel’s efforts, shape an international arbitration, and strategically consider third party litigation funding.

Professor Elayne E. Greenberg’s latest Ethical Compass column, “Act Like a Lawyer, Talks Like a Lawyer . . . Non-lawyer Advocates Representing Parties in Dispute Resolution” appears in the Spring 2018 New York Dispute Resolution Lawyer. This column raises the ethical concerns of having increasing numbers of non-lawyer legal advocates (NARs) represent clients in the negotiations, mediation and arbitration of legal matters. The idea for this column was sparked by a conversation Professor Greenberg had with Professor Christine Lazarro about the proliferation of NARs firms representing public investors in FINRA securities arbitrations and mediations.
