NAM announced today that New York City Chief Settlement Negotiator, Kenneth Grundstein, Esq., has joined National Arbitration and Mediation, Inc. (NAM) exclusively as a full-time Hearing Officer. Mr. Grundstein will be available to mediate and arbitrate cases throughout the NY Metro area as of February 1, 2010.

In Mr. Grundstein's positions as former Senior Counsel at the New York City Health & Hospital Corporation, Chief of the Personal Injury Division for the Office of the NYC Comptroller and as the Senior Litigator in the Tort Division of the New York City Law Department, he has significant expertise in the areas of personal injury, medical malpractice, torts and products liability. Additionally, although Mr. Grundstein's experience has been on the “defense side,” during his 20 year tenure in his various high visibility positions for the City, he was highly respected by the plaintiffs' bar and is uniformly regarded as an exceptional and talented settlement negotiator.

“Ken is well-respected for his keen ability to effectively manage and negotiate the settlement of complex high-stakes cases. He is no stranger to mediating and we anticipate an exceptional response to the availability of his services, both in Manhattan and throughout the New York Metro region. NAM continues to expand its presence in and around the NYC marketplace with the opening of its new facility in the Chanin building in January 2010, where Mr. Grundstein will be located” said President & CEO of NAM, Roy Israel.

NAM actively seeks and recruits the most experienced professionals from across the country so that they can offer their clients the best panel in the industry. Only those individuals with exceptional credentials and outstanding reputations, like Kenneth Grundstein, Esq., will be considered. Mr. Grundstein joins a panel of 41 highly qualified and respected Neutrals, including 35 former Supreme Court and Appellate Court Judges in the New York Metro region.
