New York, NY (April 25, 2019) – NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation), one of the nation's leading providers of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services, is proud to announce that it will be hosting this year's Association of Corporate Counsel-New York City Chapter (ACC-NYC) Signature Social event at the Tenement Museum in New York City on Tuesday, May 14th.

The Signature Social, Tours and Hors d' Oeuvres at the Tenement Museum, is expected to attract more than 100 in-house counsel and attorneys from major law firms throughout New York City. Each guest will be invited to experience the unique history of the Lower East Side through 30-minute custom curated tours at the National Historic Landmark Tenement Building located at 97 Orchard Street. These unique educator-led tours will bring to life the diverse and personal stories of immigrant families who settled on the Lower East Side and followed their aspirations to America. The tours will be paired with ethnic food tastings from handpicked local neighborhood establishments and will both entertain and educate all those who attend.

This year marks two years since NAM began its partnership with ACC-NYC, further expanding its relationships with chapter members, as well as with the in-house legal community at large. With exciting networking events and activities planned throughout the year, including a full array of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs, this has been a particularly robust year for NAM and ACC-NYC.
