Schulman Blackwell represents clients of all sizes in trials, arbitrations, and appeals, in federal and state courts. Our attorneys handle disputes ranging in size from hundreds of millions of dollars, down to smaller commercial matters. Each case is equally important to us. Our unfailing drive to understand and implement our clients’ business and litigation objectives sets us apart.
Our trial practice is complemented by extensive experience representing clients before federal and state agencies (SEC, EEOC, etc.), as well as before self-regulatory institutions (e.g., FINRA), and other non-judicial fora, such as federal government boards of contract appeal. We also conduct investigations into alleged wrongdoing by corporate executives and employees, including everything from purported stock options backdating to anonymous Internet postings.

(formerly known as Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services), International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), among many others.
