Practice Areas

Chaim Book is an experienced mediator and has served for more than fifteen years on mediation panels in the federal courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.    

In recent years, he has been retained privately to mediate many cases involving overtime disputes, sexual harassment lawsuits and various types of employment discrimination cases.  He has also focused on resolving cases involving business disputes, partnership disputes, employment contracts and non-compete violations. Chaim brings the perspective of a practicing lawyer who has litigated and tried cases in state and federal courts, and arbitration. 

 Mediation is often a valuable way of resolving disputes. It offers speed – you typically won’t have to wait years or even months for a resolution. And it generally offers a much more reasonable cost than litigation. Our attorneys are experienced negotiators and that experience assists our clients in getting the best possible result.
