William Harrington and Christopher Palermo Co-Author Book Review of Commercial Litigation Treatise

June 2016

Litigation partners William Harrington and Christopher Palermo were asked to co-author a review of the latest edition of “Commercial Litigation in New York State Courts” (4th Edition 2015), published by Thomson Reuters and the New York County Lawyers' Association. Their review appeared in the June issue of Westchester Lawyer Magazine.

The review acknowledges the increasingly limited amount of law firm resources dedicated to published books, but notes that this multi-volume treatise remains a “must have” for experienced commercial litigators and novices alike. The Westchester bench is well represented among the authors of various chapters in the treatise, with the following judges with Westchester ties (in alphabetical order) included:  Appellate Division Justices Thomas A. Dickerson (Chapter 111: Consumer Protection) and Colleen D. Duffy (Chapter 123: Entertainment); and Westchester Commercial Division Justices Linda S. Jamieson (Chapter 22: Preliminary and Compliance Conferences and Orders) and Alan D. Scheinkman (co-author of Chapter 118: Commercial Real Estate).

Mr. Harrington is the Chair of the Firm and heads the Firm’s Litigation practice group. He is also the Chairman of the Westchester County Association. Mr. Palermo, a litigation partner at the Firm, was appointed by former Chief Judge of the State of New York Jonathan Lippman to the Commercial Division Advisory Council, which advises the Chief Judge on an on-going basis on matters related to the Commercial Division courts.
