Sinnreich Kosakoff & Messina, LLP provides mediation services privately and through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). David B. Kosakoff, a Senior Partner of the Firm, has been providing services as a mediator for several years. He is a member of the Construction Panel of Mediators for AAA since 2016. He has also been appointed to the Commercial Panel of Mediators for the Nassau County Supreme Court and the Commercial Division ADR Panel for the New York County Supreme Court. Mr. Kosakoff received training from the AAA and at the Harvard Business Institute. His emphasis is addressing construction disputes ranging from small matters to multi-million dollar claims between multiple parties.
Senior Partner Vincent Messina, Jr., provides mediation services on issues involving commercial disputes. He was recently appointed by the Presiding Justice of the Appellate Division, Second Judicial Department, to serve as a Special Master in the Mandatory Civil Appeals Mediation Program recently introduced.
Mr. Kosakoff and Mr. Messina recognize that most cases are resolved prior to trial. They share a philosophy that participating in mediation as a means of achieving an early resolution can result in considerable savings of legal fees, and minimize the time that parties are forced to devote to the litigation process which could be better spent on their businesses or personal lives. They can be contacted directly to assist parties if required.
