ARLINGTON, VA and NEW YORK, NY (November 20, 2017) — Bloomberg Law and Patterson Belknap today announced the publication of New York Commercial Division Practice Guide, which provides an in-depth look at litigation in the Commercial Division of the New York Supreme Court. The Portfolio is available to Bloomberg Law subscribers and was authored by Patterson Belknap partners Stephen P. Younger, Muhammad U. Faridi, and a team of Patterson Belknap litigation attorneys. To download an excerpt of New York Commercial Division Practice Guide, visit http://on.bna.com/H1KM30gCY7v.
This Portfolio provides practical guidance for attorneys involved in litigation in the Commercial Division of the New York State Supreme Court, which was formed to enhance the quality of judicial adjudication and to improve efficiency in the case management of commercial disputes that are litigated in New York State courts. The Commercial Division presents some unique challenges, since it applies procedural rules that govern the entire New York State court system as well as specific and ever-changing rules adopted specifically for the division.
“New York Commercial Division Practice Guide fills a void by providing guidance on how to successfully manage the Commercial Division’s litigation process, which can be quite vexing,” said Scott Falk, Vice President and General Manager, Health Care & Litigation, Bloomberg Law. “We benefit immensely from Stephen’s and Muhammad’s substantial experience in the Commercial Division, which includes being involved in its initial formation, participating in its rule-making process and litigating in the court.”
The Portfolio delves into the inner workings of the Commercial Division, including the selection of its judges, the rules governing practice in the court, its jurisdiction, management of cases in the court, discovery, motion and trial practice, and appeals from the court. Discovery, motion practice, trials and emergency applications are examined next, with subsequent chapters describing appeals and innovative Commercial Division programs, such as a special part set up to handle residential mortgage-backed securities litigation and the accelerated adjudication program. The practice tools at the end of the portfolio include the forms most commonly used in court and sample forms for successful management of discovery, initiating mediation, and filing appeals.
“Even though many practitioners have substantial experience in arbitration or litigation in other courts, they often find the Commercial Division difficult to navigate,” said Younger. “They must regularly consult multiple sources in order to find an answer to a simple procedural question. We believe that this practice guide will serve as a comprehensive resource, aiding litigants in understanding the evolving landscape for commercial litigation in New York.”
“Although there are several publications that provide guidance on the substantive law governing commercial disputes in New York, there is no similar monograph that comprehensively sets forth a practical guide for the Commercial Division,” added Faridi. “This publication seeks to resolve that issue.”
Bloomberg Law portfolios are written by expert practitioners and feature deep-dive analysis and practice tools, such as checklists, sample client letters, forms and other supporting material, on a wide range of key legal topics.
