NEW YORK – JAMS, the largest private provider of mediation and arbitration services worldwide, today announced the addition of Hon. Michael H. Dolinger (Ret.) to its panel. Judge Dolinger will be based in the JAMS New York Resolution Center. He will serve as a mediator, arbitrator and special master in a variety of disputes including Business/Commercial, Class Action/Mass Torts, Construction, Employment, Estates/Probate/Trusts, Intellectual Property and Insurance.
Prior to joining JAMS, Judge Dolinger served for more than 30 years as a United States Magistrate Judge in the Southern District of New York. While on the bench, he handled thousands of settlements, ranging from personal injury actions, complex statutorily-based claims and massive class action lawsuits presenting complex problems of constitutional and commercial law. At the same time, he presided over pretrial and/or trial in thousands of cases of equivalent breadth and complexity.
“Judge Dolinger brings a deep and varied background to his practice at JAMS,” said Chris Poole, JAMS president and CEO. “He handles each matter with the patience, sensitivity and creativity needed to successfully resolve it. We’re thrilled to have him join our panel in New York.”
“I am delighted to join a very talented group of JAMS panelists,” Judge Dolinger said. “Assisting parties to reach a consensual resolution of their disputes is often challenging and is always a boon to the judicial system. I look forward to that challenge.”
Judge Dolinger received his B.A. magna cum laude from Columbia College, Columbia University and his J.D. from Columbia Law School, where he served as the editor-in-chief of the Columbia Law Review.
