NY Commercial Litigation: Distinctions that Non-New Yorkers Need to Know To Effectively Represent Their Clients

1h 30m

Created on April 12, 2016



In this course, attorneys Paul Sarkozi and Vincent Syracuse review the procedures that govern New York practice with an emphasis on how New York practice differs from federal practice (and the practice in most other states), the strategic choices a commercial litigator needs to make in deciding whether to bring an action in New York’s Commercial Division and recent rule changes that impact the handling of cases in the Commercial Division. Without knowing these procedural distinctions, a lawyer’s advocacy will get muddled as a hometown advocate will find ways to delay and frustrate her adversary from presenting the client’s story in an effective manner. 


Learning Objectives:

I.     Understand New York distinctions to effectively represent clients in business disputes

II.    Identify key criteria to consider when deciding whether to bring a case in state or federal court

III.   Recognize the benefits of seeking assignment to the Commercial Division 

IV.   Grasp how to take full advantage of the Commercial Division’s new rules to help clients cost-effectively prosecute or defend their disputes
