Commercial Division ADR Program

The Commercial Division of the Supreme Court in Queens County promotes the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, and mediation in particular, to encourage the early resolution of commercial matters and avoid protracted litigation. Mediation is a confidential and informal process where the parties meet with a trained, neutral third party to identify issues and explore options that may result in a mutually acceptable resolution. The mediator does not make a determination, but instead assists the parties in creating their own resolution of the issues. Cases may be referred to mediation by the assigned commercial judge, the Administrative Judge, or by consent of the parties.
