William J. A. Sparks, Attorney at Law

NEW-YORK-ATTORNEY“Thank you for visiting my website. I am a Lawyer, Mediator, and Arbitrator. I serve as a neutral for parties involved in a dispute seeking an alternative to the lengthy and costly litigation process.”
~William J. A. Sparks

What sets me apart from other Mediators and Arbitrators?

As a Mediator and Arbitrator, I draw upon my broad, in-depth corporate and litigation management experience to help parties explore alternatives to resolve disputes and avoid lengthy, and costly litigation. I am certified as a commercial Mediator in the State of New York by the OCA (Office of Court Administration). I serve on the roster of Mediators of the Supreme Courts, Nassau, Queens and New York County Commercial Divisions and as well as the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York Storm Sandy Panel of Mediators (insurance coverage issues). I am also a member of panels of both Mediators and Arbitrators of the Nassau County Bar Association (NCBA). In addition, I conduct Fee Arbitrations between attorneys and clients in Nassau County.

My decades of experience as in-house legal counsel for two publicly traded companies, W. R. Grace & Co., and Olin Corporation,  provided me with unique insight into the challenges of running a complex and profitable business. My experience and skills help parties involved in a dispute explore alternatives and reach agreement in an expedited manner. I have hands-on experience in the fields of product liability, asbestos property damage claims, (toxic torts),  insurance disputes, personal injury claims, bankruptcy, construction and commercial matters. I thoroughly prepare in advance of a scheduled mediation or arbitration, as a litigator,  to avoid wasting time. My hands-on experience resolving complex business disputes is in the following areas:

Commercial Matters                     Negligence: PD & PI
Construction Disputes                  Torts
Fee Disputes
Insurance Coverage
