    Nassau County Commercial Mediation Training

    Nassau County Bar Association

    Simeon Baum was delighted to once again team up with Steve Hochman to take their commercial mediation training on the road to lovely Nassau County. The three-day training, held at the truly majestic Nassau County Bar Association in Mineola, was a treat to deliver to such a distinguished and enthusiastic group of more than 20 Long Island mediators. This training was offered through the New York State Bar Association’s Dispute Resolution Section in conjunction with the Nassau County Bar Association.


    For over 20 years, Messrs. Baum and Hochman have delivered this three-day program to train mediators for the Commercial Division in the New York State court system. This year, it was an honor and privilege to bring the training to Nassau County. As always, there were professional mediators on hand to serve as facilitators during 3 interactive role plays in which the participants received on the job training in three very different commercial scenarios. The trainees especially benefitted from this hands-on experience, and from the insights and expertise of our facilitators.


    Another highlight of this program was the very useful insights provided by three Nassau County Commercial Division Judges – the Hon. Stephen A. Bucaria, Hon. Timothy S. Driscoll and Hon. Jerome Murphy.  We were also grateful to have Administrative Judge Thomas A. Adams kick off the program by providing the opening remarks.
