The skill and training of the ADR professional is paramount – and I’ve been involved for many years. I’ve seen the practice grow in popularity, along with training programs, certifications and licensing.

As part of the legendary legal teams that helped change the way managed healthcare handles mental health issues and defended IBM against antitrust charges, Joseph Sahid built a reputation as an authority in the legal field: A man capable of both a comprehensive understanding of the law and of managing large teams of professionals working towards a common goal. As one of the most respected alternative dispute resolution (ADR) professionals in the country, his recent membership in both Mediation.com and Arbitration.com as part of a larger campaign to raise his online profile is long overdue.
“Over the years, I’ve dealt with issues involving class actions, private actions, arbitrations and mediations, particularly in the business, commercial and securities areas,” Mr. Sahid said of the move. “I believe that mediators use various techniques to open, or improve, dialogue between disputants, with the aim of guiding the parties to an agreement. The skill and training of the ADR professional is paramount – and I’ve been involved for many years. I’ve seen the practice grow in popularity, along with training programs, certifications and licensing.”
A graduate of the University of Virginia Law School, where he ranked first in his class each semester, and a long-time Litigation Partner in the Cravath, Swaine & Moore law firm, Mr. Sahid is included in Who’s Who In America and has been consistently given the highest possible rating by Martindale-Hubbell. He has been handling high-profile, complex disputes and litigation for more than four decades, and is a Mediator for the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, and the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York (New York County), and an Arbitrator for the New York City Small Claims Court. He has also been an arbitrator for the Financial Industry National Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
