Norman Solovay, as a long-time litigator, has been in charge of and tried an exceptionally broad spectrum of litigations and arbitrations, including antitrust and securities actions, "business divorces," intellectual property and libel cases, and a few high profile actual divorces. He has been equally active in bringing about less costly and speedier settlement through alternate dispute resolution. He now makes it a regular practice whenever feasible to offer opponents an opportunity to mediate before formal filing of a complaint or demand for arbitration. His practice has recently been focusing on breaking impasses in long-running bogged down litigations. Mr. Solovay has frequently served as an arbitrator and mediator and has authored two books on arbitration and mediation published by Matthew Bender Co. entitled "Using Arbitration in Commercial Disputes and Alternate Dispute Resolution." A third volume, entitled "The Internet and Dispute Resolution: Untangling the Web" has just been published by The New York Law Journal Press. Mr. Solovay attended Cornell University and Columbia University Law School, where he was editor of the Law Review. After serving as Law Secretary to the late Judge Charles Breitel, he formed and headed the litigation department of Holtzmann, Wise and Shepard during the many years it served as general counsel to the Allen & Company investment banking firm, as well as to Aristotle Onassis and his U.S. enterprises, and many other prominent individual and corporate clients.
