On November 15, litigation partner Mitchell Auslander was among a group of distinguished authors to be honored by the New York County Lawyers’ Association (NYCLA) and West Publishing for his significant contribution to the recently published Commercial Litigation in New York State Courts (3rd Ed.) The critically acclaimed litigation treatise, which is a joint venture of West (a Thomson Reuters business) and the NYCLA, contains the work of a select group of authors, many of whom are counted among the very best commercial litigators and judges in New York State. This "bible" for commercial litigators, incorporates an in-depth discussion of the interplay between rules of procedures and substantive law, and outlines strategies for the representation of plaintiffs and defendants. It also considers potential outcomes and difficulties associated with various types of actions, and includes essential tables of forms, jury instructions, statutes, rules and cases.

In his chapter, entitled "Litigation Avoidance and Prevention," Mr. Auslander provides strategies for solving commercial problems outside the context of traditional dispute resolution mechanisms. He also covers specific applications including contract disputes, employment-related litigation, professional malpractice claims, insurance and reinsurance coverage disputes, regulatory actions, intellectual property disputes and class actions.
